Possibly the serval is one of the big cats we see less often, Ron, so it's a pleasure to see your shots, captured with the animals in their wild natural setting. A very slim and elegant specimen.

Who say's that we are the only animals on the planet to love our off spring?

Just look at this and enjoy.
