3 Month old Amur Leopard Cub playing in the rocks in her enclosure, and keeping an eye on Mum - and yes, as cubs their eye's really are a startling blue colour, before changing to the adult colour :- )

Post Challenge
I'm delighted to have gained another ribbon, and am happy to be beaten by21_F.gif SandyP (although we don't like to talk about that :-) )

Thank you for the many kind comments and votes.

p.s. this was the third day of waiting before she finally showed herself for about half an hour. The first day was great light but no cub, second day was dreadful weather, cold and raining all day - no cub, third day there was a bit of sunshine before the rain came in and I got about 30 mins of her out in the open.

Worth the effort though :- )

To my eye, the focal point seems to be the paw. You've captured a beautiful creature in a stunning environment. That eye is captivating. Image how much better it would be if the focus was on the eye.
