This is Atara, a North Chinese Leopard - I love her long whiskers. It is another image taken at the WHF in Kent.
Many thanks to ValSaxby and to Fred (badgerfred) for their precious UAs for The Boss II and to all of you for your comments and votes.
I hope you're all having a good weekend. Smile

They can turn and kill very very quickly...
