A young Leopardess named Kima awakens and greets the day with an impressive stretch to a glorious dawn sky.
I could have made this a silhouette, but felt for this particular frame a hint of shadow detail says a little more.

Great, lithe stretching pose, Marc - and beautiful against that wonderful dawn sky background!

Love it! What a beautiful sky and great behavior. I like your choice to leave a bit of detail in the leopardess.
