Tam bir belgesel... Bu fotoğrafı görünce Anadolu'nun nesli tükenmiş dev kedileri aklıma geldi ve hüzünlendim... Emeğinize sağlık... Selamlar...

Wild life!!!
Light on composition and quality perfect!

Suha, Great detail in this classic Leopard-with-prey tree capture. Love the gore factor here. I'm wondering what your light source was for this? Well seen & captured!!

Thats a great shot Suha. Can't get more natural than this. Interesting light on the front of the tiger. What is it from?

Excellent! I would have liked to know where the photo was taken. It looks like the remains of a warthog for dinner. I envy you the experience.

Grande photo nature. La lumière sur le félin et sur la proie est parfaite. La prise de vue est excellente. L'image a une bonne définition avec beaucoup de détails. En bref une très grande composition. FÉLICITATIONS !

Great shot Suha! Moment, pose, composition, quality - all excellent. Pity that sky wasn't more red. This scene on sunset should be even better!

Sorry, pts tomorrow.

Magnifique moment de nature. Et la lumière sur le léopard est superbe ! Bravo et merci de partager :o)
