Another shot taken at Headcorn in Kent.
If you have not been it is well worth it.
I was about 12" away from this leopard when i took this i could feel its breath, i had to spend an hour before betting this shot so it knew that i was not going to hurt it.

I can feel it too! Great close-up. I think the soft lighting in the UK has a special effect on wild life (and other subjects) which is very different from other locations in the world.
Check out for some inspiration and book a trip to Southern Africa. I'm sure your experience would come in handy.
