Some birds are hard to catch by 

Here we have an Amur Leopard from Rotterdam ZOO..taken 3 hours ago (Nov,14)
This guy is hard to get …going there 10x you might see 1 or 2x a glimpse oh him
Anyway.. today i was ‘lucky’ The Amur Leopards is on the edge of extinction ..there are guesses less than a 100 still live in the Wild (Siberia)
Canon 5D MarkII/Canon lens 70-300 on 80mm/F11.31/ISO 200


nature, amur panther, predators, big cats, zoos

Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever… it remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything!

    A beautiful cat and wonderfully captured, John! Let’s hope the tide turns and this panther will make a big comeback. We have our own endangered cat here, the Florida Panther.
