Happy Saturday everyone.....
Thank you for all your votes and funny comments about my buffalo, all much appreciated.
My last of The BIG FIVE is the beautiful leopard. We came across this young male in the shade of a tree and he happily posed for us. He really was so cute as you will see in V2.....I am just a little pussy cat...
Have a great day GrinGrin

Great cat photos, Colleen. My cats pose just like that......and a bit smaller, no spots....maybe a bit less wild.

Absolutely gorgeous. Love that 'rub my belly' shot in V2 though I think that doing so would be a mite risky!

From what I know when the mammals sit in back, in the position of V2, this translates, "I like it , I love it, or similar". So if the subject likes the picture, what we can say, we, ordinary viewers? We like the whole set!
