No Way!

By Lillian  
These really are my own big feet!! and extra long tail too

not to be argued with this beautiful Clouded Leopard
one that I have never managed to capture on previous visits to WHF (and there have been many visits)
have had problems with the dark area they live in... a full shot instead of my usual close crop

Hope that you like

Thanks everyone for comments yesterday on the tiger cub

If you are quite close and not shooting through glass, have you thought of using flash to throw some light into the shadows Lillian

Another top shot of this big cat which to me seems to be quite a young animal, but one with attitudeWink
Well timed to capture that warning grimace.
Fine shot once more, Lillian.

Oh, how gorgeous is he? He looks rather wary of you, but trying to be scary though. Smile

Am glad you kept this kitty in full frame - what a stunner it is. Looks a young animal too. Those eyes are gorgeous and do think it is telling you to back off WinkGrin. Moira

I really do love cats at this age. All the proportions are wrong. Over-size feet, short legs, that are nearly as thick as they are long and a tail that goes on forever. And an attitude, as this whipper-snapper shows.
Good un, Lillian.
