Actually I love the animas but I don't really have the stomach for the killing that has to go on for them to eat.

Some people call this "intelligent design." Hah!

Still, I'd rather be the hunter than the hunted. Great shot, under any circumstances. That leopard is daring you to try to take away his prey!

Gorgeous capture! The pattern is truly amazing and the freeze frame on the position on the tail is wonderful with the nice green grass as natural setting....The look in his eye is priceless, congrats to you!! Cheers, Linda
