Serval Cub

By Lillian  
This youngster was very lively! had a session with her
again inside her enclosure, so did my best at getting just her face and eyes


Tried to get out this morning to meet up
with Jenni and Bob at Bushy Park...still too much snow here
!Sad

Take care everyone and remember there is tomorrow
So share time with your loved ones

Thanks for stopping by

Lillian

Wow Lillian this is stunning !! I love this image !! The only Serval I ever encountered was very aggressive and I believe they are able to kill a man when cornered Smile

Definitely wins the 'cute' stakes, Lillian. Excellent shallow dof, just keeping the face in sharp focus.

What an experience you have had with these big cats, Lillian: wonderful.
And still be able to operate camera and bring home such excellent shots as this portrait, and not be overwhelmed by the situation.

You have captured this one beautifully. I have been fortunate enough to see one in the wild. As Ron says, truly inspirational.
No luck at bushy park. You did well to stay home warm. Too many people & their dogs off leash. Big ones small ones. Only saw a flock of fallow deer. Not a red deer in site, but lots of snow

What a little cutie Lillian, all this snow should give you the opportunity to capture some of our native and much smaller wildlife that is assuming that you are not snowed in!
