Excellent intent gaze and pose-really shows the power of the animal, ready to spring. The light compliments her lovely markings.

Awesome looking cat with perfect shadowing for camouflage. Fortunately her eyes are in the light which increases the look of her intensity. Just an outstanding image.

Excellent image Marc. Lovely light and composition. The way they crouch so low in hunting mode is amazing.
Make your life spectacular!

A must click on this one to fully appreciate the beautiful dappled early morning light on this belly slinking leopardess as she stalks potential prey. A wonderful capture of the stalking behaviour of this beauty, Marc!

I love the intense stare. Really shows the concentration for the hunt. The downhill pose is also an unusual but excellent presentation.
