A very challenging posture and facial expression: as I said before, what an experience for you, Lillian, to be able to occupy 'his space' and still be able to concentrate on capturing this image, and a superb one at that.
Very well done, my friend.
Ronnie.

While the Serval, despite that serious face, managed to pretend he/she was just a nice pussy cat, there's no doubting this one's character and attitude! Fantastic image, Lillian. Just amazed you returned and were able to post more images on epz!! Tongue

You do have a way with the boys, LillianWink He saw you photographing a rival and took umbrage. You mustn't play with his emotions...he's jealous.

Seriously, this is superb and that 10mm lens shows no distortion ever at this close range.Tongue
Just kidding, I know you weren't that close.
