Funny long legged cats. Almost like rag dolls. Wonderful to see in the wild. An excellent capture of the two........Sandy

Such elegance in that one front leg is held before hitting the ground - beautiful animals beautifully captured.

Such sad little faces above the long legs, I suppose they can run like the wind and fold down into a small outline in the long grass. A wonderful experience Ron.
