Snow Leopard closeup

By nclark
Taken at the Wildlife Heritage Foundation in Kent on Saturday. I was about 6 inches from the cat, called Ranschan, who cam up to see what I was doing and then saw its reflection in the lens and growled.
It's not quite what I'd like as the cage is too sharp, but it was quite an experience!
The lens seemed to focus far closer than is is rated for, this was at 39mm.

You were braver than me, those teeth were extremely close to your head! Nice set of pearlies!

tooth whitener would seem to be required. Great close up

Yes... Shame about the wire being in focus as this is a cracker! Accepting the green wire, this is still a great shot. I would have called this 'Too close for comfort', or maybe 'Back off!'
An exciting shot filled with fear!
