You guessed it!! I got too close!
Was in the enclosure with him...he is smaller than the usual domestic cat, but VERY much a wild cat.
It was a real honour to share his space, and V2 shows he did forgive me
nothing special as I got the shot even though...jumped!Wink
bit of sharpness on tongue & eyes hand held

What a great day yesterday...we all helped each other and hope everyone
got shots as great as I think mine are, Thanks for arranging Val
Owls as never before...and in flight, and new friends

I never got indoors until 12.45am!!

Not so sure he has forgiven you in V 2, Lillian.........just shielding his canines to lull you into a false sense of security, then......POUNCE.
You are very brave going into the enclosures with these animals but what an experience.
