Here is the snow leopard again. Due to the crappy weather we've been having (just at weekends), and working so very hard!! I've had to post another shot of the Snow Loepard from the rare Leopard breeding project.
I have a few more emergency posts ready, but the good news is that this weekend has been forcast as nice and sunny. So something different from me on Sunday.

You can view previous posts of this leopard, and read notes Here, Here, Here, Here, Here and Here.

Thanks for looking, have a good day.

Stunning shot, the depth of field is just right to get the whole head in focus, yet keep the body out of foucus. Gives the head an almost 3D effect.

Iinitially wondered about the stick top left but on balance I loike it as it adds atmosphere rather than distracts.

Well done

Nice portrait shot Alan, great sharpness and DOF, well captured too. Thanks for sharing.

Hi Alan,
I like this portrait of a leopard.
The harmony of the colors is very interesting and the framing is very good.
In my opinion, the stick on the top left is distracting.
You captured the perfect moment since the look of the leopard and its body are both in the frame.
The sharpness is excellent.
Bravo !

Hi Alan, A stunning shot, dof is excellent with the body oof. She's a beauty.
I (personally) find the branch distracting and would also prefer her facing the other way so have done a quick ws (hope you don't mind).
Thanks for posting.
(will pop back later to read notes)

Fantastic portrait, Alan!
Very sharp and detailed image, great colour and nice frame.

Hi Alan

You are working too hard. Haven't seen you post in a while :-(

This is a beauty. Lovely facial features. Good Dof. Details are crisp, clear and sharp. Nice light and exposure. Very nice work. TFS.

HI Alan, I love your snowleopard, he's quite impressive. Very sharp and clear, good details too. Well done.
And congrats on winning the Ashes! I hope you keep them for the next 18+ years too...

Great post of your by-now famous snow leopard. I really like the way the head stands out in such sharp details against the blurred body. A very beautiful head with a pensive expression. Well done and TFS. : )
