Amur leopards (Panthera pardus orientalis) are one of the most endangered cats in the world. There are thought to be only 30-35 in the wild today.
Edinburgh Zoo has 2 in captivity, and this series of 4 shots were all taken there on Wednesday. Shot through the glass with the lens touching it to avoid reflections.
I'm no natural history photographer, or cat lover (they make me sneeze) but cannot deny the beauty of this big cat.
