Clouded Leopard

By Holmewood
Thank you so much for the votes and comments on my Camargue Horses with special thanks to Lillian and Danny (danbrann) for your much appreciated User Awards.

Back to WHF today and a Clouded Leopard. It looks (to me) as if she is smiling and I love her dotted nose.

Clouded leopards have proportionally the longest canines of any felid. They have distinctive "cloud" marking of darker ellipses on a coat which varies from tawny to silvery-grey. They have proportionally large feet, short legs and very long flexible tail which gives them excellent balance and allows them to live almost entirely arboreally.

Have a great afternoon and evening and I will catch up later.

If I tried that Malcolm she would end up with no whiskers but I do see your point. Cathy

Nice. Lifting the shadows on the eyes makes a big difference, using the shadow tool discretely.
