That little Amur Leopard cub again - there are believed to be less than 35 remaining in the wild, so they are a critically endangered species and a lot rests on her, and the others in captivity if they are to survive.

Post Challenge

Many thanks for all the votes and kind comments - although perhaps a tiny bit mystified by the person who gave the shot a '1' :- )

In answer to those who have commented on her eyes - they set off this eye catching blue colour for the first few months before changing to the golden brown of the mature Leopard. In this photo she is about 3 months old (and growing fast).

Beautiful shot. I love the big wide eyes. Interesting info about the eye color. I'm sure it will be fun for you to go back and get a picture later when her eyes change color. Congrats on the top 10 in a FS!

I'm sure I saw this on the BBC website! I would hazard a guess at Jedusi? Absolutely perfect in every way, and an easy 10 from me.

Love the contrast of those beautiful blue eyes to the yellow/orange/tan/mottled black of the face. A few very bright OOF spots detract a bit but this is one of the best I've seen so far. I predect a top ten. Congrats.
