That is no tame 'moggy'' that is one very wild outdoor cat

Note how coarse his fur is and those eyes...taken at the British wildlife Centre
taken in the grass as background , did not remove , as natural

Thank you everyone for all your comments on the Red Squirrel also to
Hugh, Trev and Ann for your User Awards.....very grateful

Putting on a V2 to show his size on a tree!

Thanks Everyone and have a great day

Lillian

Good morning Lillian, WOW what fabulous images, fantastic detail and those eyes are gorgeous, he / she does look very cuddly but I some how doubt he / she is actually looking for a cuddle Smile Love those whiskers too Smile

V1 illustrates the expression that differentiates this wild cat from the domestic tabby.

A mean looking beggar in V2. Have always wanted a shot of a wild cat but they tend to stay in the shade in when I have seen them (only in captivity). So for me V1 is a very lovely portrait Lillian.

Looks just like our Simba, only with an extra eye Tongue

Having tried getting similar captures in the past at the BWC I can appreciate just how tricky getting a good image of the wildcats is....Well done Lillian....

This is one intense stare--- His fur is out door cat fur, and the bg suggest, properly, that that is where he is--
Bet he is a good rat trap!
