Nice kitten. Good capture Eyal. The pose is excellent too. Well done

One cute little puddy cat Eyal very nicely seen in the fork of the tree.
it would be good to know some more details about him .

Nice ! Webster says : from Turkish karakulak, ,,kara,, black + ,,kulak,, ear and so the French xplorers spread the word caracal...

This is a beautiful shot, the animal is fantastic, and the pose in very good. The lights are perfect to play with levels, so although I like the picture like it is, I just made a workshop to try other lighting. Thanks for sharing.

NOOOOO!!! This is an unbelievable shot. The frequent our province too. I have seen a couple in the wild. I have never seen a kitten though. You are very lucky with this shot. They hide their young. This critter is just about the size where they start to fend for themselves. One in a million moment Eyal. I am so glad you shared this. It is my favourite cat. Do you have Sand cats as well?

Wow he's cute, what a lovely cat...
Good details, well captured.
Well done

95 mammals in Isreal, that's amazing.

Nice composition and POV.
