This is TINY...He may be called that, but what a magnificent beast he is
and it is alway's a pleasure to see him again, From WHF in Kent...went yesterday and met up with Barbara, Nick and Maggie and think they will agree this was one of the best day's there.


Being so tired he hardly managed to greet me with any enthusiasm, but at least I think you have the 'gist' of the mood here.


Nothing done to the image..was a tight crop in camera, as is my way with the Big Cats... We managed to take 'hundreds' of images and a treat was to go into the enclosure with the Serval so be prepared lots of Big Cats to come.

Thank you for dropping by and leaving C&C's yesterday
Enjoy the day

Wonderful portrait but I'd be worried if I were you Lillian. That look in his eye says that he's licking his lips in anticipation of you becoming a tasty snack!

An absolutely superb capture of 'little' Tiny Lillian! You captured his mood yesterday perfectly! It really was a excellent day wasn't it? Just glad it was cooler than today has been! Congratulations on the well deserved awards. Not had a chance to look at mine yet. We've family coming over very soon and have been busy getting the house sorted! It was so nice to meet up with you again too, thanks for our pressies!
