The Amur tigers and leopards have become a passion of mine with regular visits to the Yorkshire Wildlife Park. I haven't been to this particular park but it looks like a must go to place! Your image is stunning and I'm very envious as I haven't seen let alone photographed a cub! The more coverage these magnificent creatures get and their plight in the wild the more chance we have of saving them! Regards ,,Ian

What a photogenic subject!
WHF is indeed a great place. It is one of my best photo days that I have had, and it's only a short drive for me.
This must be one of many great shots from the day, look forward to seeing more.

Expertly done, Lillian. The pose and expression is down to the cubs but you've captured them at a great angle. The lighting is excellent and the dof spot on. Beautiful image.

Cue and cuddly as Sue says, but best not to try that latter, I guess: lovely shot of them basking in the late sun, Lillian.

Oh Lillian, they are gorgeous. Nick and I had recently decided that next time anyone organises a meet at WHF we will travel up and make a couple of days away. We both adore big cats (little ones too).Grin
Glad you had a good day, a beautiful image, makes one want a cuddle.... send some of your sunshine this way Lillian.

Silly me - thought the other cub was a reflection!
If I'd taken time to read the narrative properly
I'd have realised there were two!

Loveable indeed, it's a shame they'll never see their real home though. At least they'll be safe here.

An absolutely enchanting image Lillian, you've definitely made the most of this opportunity. There was plenty of ooo'ing and aaarr'ing when I was down in Bristol too...........but that was just the Big O talking in his broad Bristolian accent!Grin
