You have captured the great beauty of this feline very well, Nigel.
Nigel Clack: Thank ou very much Ray.
Perfect 10. Where was this taken? Was there glass between you and the cat (I can not tell)
Nigel Clack: Thanks again, there was a wire fence.
Now, THAT is a cat. Wonderful capture and a likey for me.

Everything about it works. Does make one's heart race a bit. They are quite magnificent creatures..
Nigel Clack: Indeed they are, cheers attah.
Great details and beautyful lighting
Nigel Clack: Thanks Richard
Oh my! This is stunning, and another creature that brings a lump to my throat - so beautiful. You did amazingly well to overcome the wire fence - it looks so natural. (:o)

cracking shot Nig, there is tension in the pose of the creature, super shot. mal
Nigel Clack: Youre right, there was a male prowling around, which was making the females a bit skittish.
