Hey Alan,

What a wonderful capture. WOW you must have been close to this old boy to get such a nice close up at only 98mm. This is a very good shot, and considering your slow shutter speed, very sharp. Well done and TFS

These shots give me shivers! You are capturing these beautiful animals wonderfully. He truly looks as if he is hiding, or is it stalking you? The color is very natural. Exceptionally done.

What a playful pose in this amazing shot, Alan!

But, only if it were my dog...it looks a little intimidating with your leopard staring out like this.

A wonderful moment, well captured, with great details, color, lighting, and amazing eyes!

Well done, and TFS.

This is a stunning capture, Alan! Sharpness and DOF are really good. I fear he's about to jump on you, glad you made it home to share the pic.



Hi Alan,
A very nice shot. I look at this and feel like he is stalking me! The light is perfect, and nice detail.

Oh Alan, this shot of the leopard is just great. You have captured his expression and pose so well. Just stunning.
Well shown, thank you.

This came out nicely Alan, nice predatory feel to it with the animal behind the log and foliage and peering out like that.

Hello Alan!
Very nice capture.Pose of leopard,sharpness,details,colors,POV and composition are excellent.TFS...:-)

Superb shot Alan!
The pose of the cat is great - it looks like a scene from an adventure movie.
The POV is perfect, light and colours great, however the focus seems to be a bit soft.
I think it would be good to cut the cats leg... on the photo of course ;)
The head is the most interesting part of the photo and a bit more tight framing could possibly expose it better.
Overall, as always beautiful photo of beautiful cat.

Yes, smell of adventure and distant lands ;-) Lovely pose of this predator, he's hunting, so better to go away ;-) I like POV and composition, leaves on FG aren't distracting for me at all. Beautifull animal very well captured.

Alan, although he could be trying to hide, this is still a great capture.

I like the expression, pov and composition. The eyes are simply amazing.
