She is a beauty right enough. What a face she is pulling at you TongueGrin. Very well captured.
However she has whiskers, not whishers as in the title - go back to bed WinkTongue. Or maybe they are whishers when the brush past you - if you get that close.

What a beautiful animal Lillian. I am not at all anti zoo's and collections but what a shame that such a creature must be contained in such a way. I do understand all the reasons for zoo's to exist but in my mind I have an image of this glorious creature bounding free.GrinGrinGrin
I shall now dry my eyes and vote !!!

Bit disappointed Lillian! You get in an enclosure with a fox and let it jump all over you, and you take this behind glass, she is a pussy after all.
Only kidding this is excellent and would not know that there was glass, excellent capture!

Those front teeth look pretty long, too, Lillian! A very well timed shot to catch her snarling like that, and of course, an excellent quality image Wink

Thank You all
Ron, the WHF is a breeding program where they hope to breed and release into their natual habitat,
there has been so many terrible acts against all the big cats in the wild
this is their way to get them back into the wild, and it was the only place to photograph without us giving any germs
to them and they do have fantastic large runs to roam in
I prefer to sponsor a cat there (ZIZI) each year ..instead of xmas cards and postage...think about it!Smile
