Just surveying her visitors into her home!!
Her eyes are so different to a house cat..and do not be lured into thinking...cute!

she is a wild outdoor critter, and has teeth to stay away from
Taken last week at the BWC in Surrey

V2 a fuller version of her

Catitude!......Looks just like our cat Simba, but this one has both his eyes and Simba's twice his size, but is nothing more than a great big couch potato, except when there's a rat about. Then you get to see his wild side....

Excellent detailed head shot, Lillian, but I'm leaning towards the whole shebang in v2 Smile The pose on the log and composition is very good.

A fine example of the Scottish wild cat, Lillian, captured with your customary care and expertise in both these shots, head portrait as well as the bigger picture.
Wonderful detail and just look at those eyes.......such finely marked irises.

A purrfect shot, even if she is so wild.
Honestly, her eyes DO look like Elrond's but maybe that is because he is a maine coon. But he only turns wild when you try to put flea drops on him Smile

Beautiful feline portrait, Lillian, with an expression that speaks of its wild nature in a way that only you could capture, but V2 is also wonderful, so no favourite.
