75. Dangerous

The most secretive and elusive of the large carnivores, the leopard is also the shrewdest. Pound for pound, it is the strongest climber of the large cats and capable of killing prey larger than itself.   Yikes….I think I prefer to see this guy in the zoo behind glass!

  1. What an excellent shot. Great detail in the whiskers. It feels like he is staring right at you. Great shot. Was this really through glass?

  2. I would MUCH prefer to see all of these things out in the wild living full lives but that isn’t today’s world and at least we get to see them – Our children won’t.

  3. Too close for comfort in this shot – really shows the power and danger he represents. Nice one.

  4. Wonderful shot of that beautiful face! They are amazing creatures.

  5. What big eyes he has. The better to see…

  6. FANTASTIC shot!

  7. What a beautiful animal. Is it a snow leopard?

  8. Incredible shot. The close up of the face is fantastic-straight out of a page of National Geographic!

  9. This is a fabulous shot, Tammy. The details in the leopard’s face are amazing. His eyes are so sharp. You wonder what he is looking at.

  10. Beautiful, fabulous, awesome shot!! Amazing color.

  11. This picture makes you hold your breath–you can just FEEL the cat’s ferocity, and you won’t want to draw its attention.

  12. G-O-R-G-E-O-U-S!!!

  13. Wow!

  14. Fabulous shot of a great cat. I don’t think I would like to meet him face to face either. But it is nice to see them in the wild (on tv that is).

  15. Gorgeous kitty. I can just picture him licking his chops in anticiaption of any zoo goers who get a bit too close.

  16. Really nice shot. Did you put the lense of your camera against the glass to avoid refections? Love the great cats and can’t wait to take my grandkids to the zoo this summer.

  17. What an expression! Great capture!

  18. Can’t say anything but echo everyone’s WOWs! That is one super image……

  19. Ditto, ditto, ditto. Love it!

  20. More dittos! Amazing shot especially through glass.

  21. I think he his eyes on dinner! Great shot, I like the blue tint, it seems to make everything stand out.

  22. beautiful close up you captured it beautifully
