Who could believe that behind that warm glance are those huge teeth. Now it's like a philosopher pondering an important question.

Another great portrait though I think the B/W treatment of the previous one has more drama to it

This leopard looks friendly to me. That is probably misleading. I don't think I would trust him up close.

That face! I always want to love on big cats, but I'm sure that would not be a good idea.

Remus from Portugal

Now that I see this photo, I think the photo of last week, in black and white, was much better than this photo. The presence of the shadow did not help to highlight the leopard.

Curly from South Shields, United Kingdom

Hmm......good enough portrait but I think I'd make a loose selection around all of that white fur and use the Camera Raw filter to warm it up a little and try to lose the bueish tones.
