Very good Eyal.
Good composition, very nice light and colours and good sharpness. Good informative note.
Great work.

Yes! Eyal this is cat I wanted. Felis chaus is also known as the swamp cat. He has a lot of similarities with F. Lybica. My book says the only way to be certain is the size of this larger cat.

This cat is severely endangered in it's limited African range.

It's a very nice shot of it next to the water. The light also just catching him right. Well done.
