O.K., no problem with V1, but I have a question....

since you used a wide aperture that blurs the animal's back, why didn't you shoot this vertically to show its legs while it walks? you'd still have the animal partially in the picture, and it would still have the 'face' part clearer that what's behind the neck...

kindly,
pablophotographer

Dear Pablophotographer, a very good question. The problem with including the legs is as Lillian points out this was taken behind glass. I have learnt and may be wrong that to try and stop any interference from the glass or even if shooting behind a fence you need to be so close to touch the screen with your lens. As I had to do this the Snow Leopard was also so close that I could not see the legs. (Not sure if that would have added any value) to this picture as for me the detail was in the face features.
