Promise not to move!

By Lillian  
That's my promise to Murphy!! not even to get your tail in
or remove the grass from your eye!!!

Was in there with him and only feet way was I going to move...would you?Smile
But loved the look I was being given so here you have it..with no change of under clothing!!SmileSmile
Has to my favourite with the hot breath again in the cold

Thank You everyone for stopping by and

A very challenging posture and facial expression: as I said before, what an experience for you, Lillian, to be able to occupy 'his space' and still be able to concentrate on capturing this image, and a superb one at that.
Very well done, my friend.

Terrific capture Lillian. This is nicely exposed and all the pent up power of the beast is so evident in the crouching pose.

While the Serval, despite that serious face, managed to pretend he/she was just a nice pussy cat, there's no doubting this one's character and attitude! Fantastic image, Lillian. Just amazed you returned and were able to post more images on epz!! Tongue

You do have a way with the boys, LillianWink He saw you photographing a rival and took umbrage. You mustn't play with his emotions...he's jealous.

Seriously, this is superb and that 10mm lens shows no distortion ever at this close range.Tongue
Just kidding, I know you weren't that close.

Superb Lillian. Big cats is/was my secret fear after reading one of Wilbur Smiths books about Africa. I could never get so close to any of the large wild cats. The detail is excellent.
