Superb shot Michael!
Photo has perfect quality, the fur looks amazingly natural and soft.
The framing is a bit tight, but on the other hand it create "cosy" mood perfect for a photo of sleeping kitten.
I like it very much.
VERY WELL DONE & TFS!

Michael, thanks for the news about the decision of the Russian government. It's really a shame they don't care about the animals - just like it is all around.
As for your your shot, it's an excellent one.
Excellent pov and composition. He really seemed to be sleeping sound.
A cute shot - and he can't even imagine what may happen to him.

I started work again today and have a limited amount of time to critique. I like this photo a lot. Well done.
The tight crop is not a problem for me.

Hi Michael, nice shot of Akin, all very clear and detailed. Tip for shooting through that glass...if you're shooting handheld wear a dark shirt/coat and use your body to try to minimise the reflections, also try to get the end of the lens as close to the glass as is possible. Even with a tripod I'll try to get the lens up against the glass for the shot.

What an absolutely gorgeous leopard, Michael. I hope that the environmentalists will be able to save his habitat.
You caught this big cat in a wonderfully peaceful pose.
He seems to not have a care in the world.
Well done and TFS. : )
