I like that silhouette JB. Very nicely done.
Did you use your flash Valery? I am surprised the fox is not startled.

Funny part of this shot, Fox totally don't care about people in the car! I drive slow and get 10-12 shots. Only when I stop the car Fox ran away. :)

Hi ValeryD; :)

These are very good-looking felines and your close-up captures are very nice.
I especially liked the whitish-grey tiger's capture in the first photo; beautiful grey-green eyes fixed into the distance absent-mindedly yet vigilant and aware.
The others are just as pleasant.


Thank you for sharing,
Yildiz

aster!
The first picture with green eyes is a jaguar. :) But it seems like an overgrowth or even I do not know of any particular breed.
Thanks for the comment!

A jaguar ! I love jaguars but hard to tell from such a close up. :) Thanks for the correction.

Has a penetrating and determined look in those eyes.

Thanks,

Never seen a mink before. Thank you. Love the watering "hole" and Gnu.
The zebra shot looks like a composite with foreground in focus and background
not distracting. I liked the "sudden" transition from sharp foreground to blurry background.

Thank you. I see where you are coming from.

A small herd of Zebra, 10 or so, had been frolicking around kicking up a great deal of dust before running off. The three in this image were the last to run-off. The "blurring" in the background is a result of all the dust that had been thrown up by the herds antics and I can't claim any "credit" for it.
