Wonderful photo! Love the shallow depth of field and soft background. The eye contact is great!

That is a full belly, Marc! Beautiful shot and I love the light as it illuminates the face perfectly as this cub strides by.

Beautiful image, I love the attitude of the subject and the depth of field that makes this shot almost a painting.

Love the full-bellied pose and the beautiful striding cub in a soft environment. A real pleasure to view, especially enlarged. Congratulations!

Great to see the full belly and your timing was spot on. Nice light on his face, too

Awesome shot Marc. There is a nice mix of sharp focus and soft bokeh and soft fur and sharp details that really works. Love the distant elongated horizon with sky above in the 16:9 format - I'm of fan of that!
