[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Time for another post from The Endangered leopard project. This is a Persian Leopard.
The Persian Leopard is probably the largest of the sub-species. There are very few left in the wild, possibly less than 200. There are 172 in captivity around the world, all belonging to the captive breeding programme.

Here
is a link to a previous post on this Persian Leopard.

Thanks for looking.

How did I know this big kitty was your photo? Another great large cat photo, Alan! The POV is amazing with great detail. I am so glad you had a nice telephoto lens; otherwise your life would have been in imminent danger.

Nice post!

You can put an image of a grill in its eyes, it will fit its look... :)
Very good look, nice picture and great exposure, I think that you could consider using higher ISO with close aperture to achieve bigger DOF.
