Beautiful shot.
Fantastic photo congratulations.

Superb photo with a great pose of the subject. Very good sharpness, DOF and BG.

What a great pose on the tree branch! And a beautiful animal. It must be wonderful to see such creatures in their natural habitat. I have always loved cats of all sizes.

Colin this shot is perfect, or so near to it I can't even imagine what you could change about this photo.
I love the arch of the tree he is sitting on, and the curl of his tail almost as if he's hanging from those branches.
Well done!

Wow, ggod shot. Looks like he is positioning ready to pounce. Great detail. Crisp clear with good colours. Well done. TFS

Very good shot, just a bit noisy.

Hi Colin
The magic moment in time, not so? Love this shot, you had a clear view of him
As a suggestion, I would crop off some of the bottom. just slightly below the horiz part of thebranch - hold a book across and see the difference it makes to the compo and impact.
nice kitty!
