Jaguar in Person!

By Lillian  
This is a rather close up of Ares...
he was on heat and not a happy boy, so ''grabbed'' what I could

V2 a little more of him
Hand held and taken at WHF in Kent

Just could not resist this handsome face, full of woe

Thank you all so much, what a reception to the cub

special thanks go to Steve, Val, John, Bob, Sue, Netta and Ju
for your User Awards

Despite what you say, these images are quite superb, Lillian, and the detail in it's fur could not be better. Nice to see the fuller picture at V 2 but that close-up inspection in V 1 is really top notch in every aspect. Wonderful photography yet again.

Two incredibly detailed images of this gorgeous hippopotamus Lillian. Image number two works for me, as I like to see what is going to eat me before I have a chance to walk away calmly.

Excellent close up crop in v1, Lillian. I think v2 would look good cropped in close on the sides as well. Two fine images.

V1 shows a sadness. He's given up the dream of going back to the wild and now only has daydreams about it. As shown in his far away gaze. V2 he's coming back to reality and maybe waiting for dinner. Love them both, with V1 just a touch more........Sandy

V1 for me, mainlky because the site is so slow tonight, I can't hang around to view V2! Sorry! I suspect it would be V1 getting the click anyway - superb image.

What an excellent close-up portrait in V1! Wonderful detail, Lillian, and yeah, he does look doleful, doesn't he? Sad

V2 wins it for me, though, 'cos of the angle and light.
