Such a small head on these cats. Probably hard animals to spot, but this is a super capture........Sandy

My immediate impression was the same as Sandy's, ie. it seems a smallish head for the body size. Good to see her in this second image, Ron, as I for one am not really familiar with this member of the big cat family although the word serval was.
She has that ability of all big cats to gaze so intently and that comes across in this shot.

Excellent work Ron! Did you manage to get one of her leaping, pouncing or running?
Went to NHM Wildlife show on Friday, really excellent! Now the schools have gone back, you really must go!

A powerful body with the small head I wonder how this came about in it's evolution? Nice to see the animal just out of it's cover Ann.

I hadn't realised how well these are camouflaged until I saw your images Ron. Also I agree with Sandy and Ronnie the head is a small in proportion to the body.

Well done for getting shortlisted for the travel POTY and all the best.

Yung
