This Petra, who allowed me to photograph her...inside her domain!

Yes, this is another of the enclosures I went into, and she was so beautiful
but moved very fast, so was a problem getting her tufts on her ears in a lot of the shots

Again hand held

My thanks to you all for stopping by and commenting yesterday
and thank you Ju and Steve for your awards very much appreciated

Fantastic shot Lillian, for some reason I am drawn to the tongue curled over the lips but of course the tufts on the ears are to be highly commended

Just as Murphy was beautifully captured in a different pose, crouching and with hackles raised, it is lovely to see yet another different, but typically feline, on the move posture.Smile How wonderful to be on Petra's territory, and how privileged you were.
Another excellent capture and yes Nick and I have decided this is a visit to do later on this year.Smile

Beautiful cat, great "pose" - cool the WB a little to bring colours out - there is a slight red tinge to the overall image - otherwise like it Smile
