She came straight to me, clicked this without too much thought ..and backed offWink

This is Viktoria and she is a 4 year old Puma taken at WHF in Kent, last Saturday.

If you are in need of a Day of sheer pleasure head to the WHF, and you will want to keep returning

Thank You all so much for the comments and the two User Awards so grateful for them

So a big thank you to Oisin (Oisinbranley) and to Trev (TrevBatCC)
and amazed Tiny must have charmed you all

Enjoy
Lillian

Hi Lillian
The focus is on the nose but I do not mind the softness of the eyes, like it!

Regards

Trev.

Thanks Trev, Thats why it is titled Nice Nose..had NO TIME to adjust, she was there, it may not look like it
but can assure you that to get this was a treat for me...or I could have been her treat!!Wink
Fast and quiet...that's a Puma for youGrin
Gary you will enjoy when you go , but book with WHF as they have 'special' treats up their sleeves.

When these gals come at the fence hissing and a snarling you don't have much time to do anything except press the shutter as you retreat! Love the definition of the fur on her nose. Such fiesty girls aren't they? Another super shot Lillian, butter wouldn't melt in this image! Wink

This is almost 3D. How gorgeous. I think because the focus is on the nose it's given the close up more depth. Gorgeous Lillian.
