This particular image is stunning! The detail is incredible. The expression of the Clouded Leopard (I think x3) is very calming, and it looks like he/she is viewing the world from a perch on a mountain. You have made the leopard seem as if it could jump right out of that picture, proud like the creature it is. I couldn't of taken a better photo myself. The bakcground is nicely blurred, while the foreground and leopard are stunningly sharp, giving the photo a more realisitc look, as if you were looking at the stunning big cat through your own eyes.
We went to two zoos last month in the Midwest... one was only open until 2:30 [winter hours and we'd driven two hours to get there]; the other was in another state and they were not even open that day [winter hours: only open on the weekend]!!!
