    Stopped by the zoo for a walk. The two snow leopards who are usually hiding were out in view. Since it is one of my favorite animals there , I snapped a few shots.

    Those paws look nice! Soft.
    Which I doubt they are when this one goes out to get his food (not this particular one, for he's in a zoo and gets fed, but his fellow snow leopards, of which I hope there still are a good many out in the wild!?!?!).
    While I do appreciate the detail in your portrait, I very much like the two pics, too, that show his front paws and a bit of his stance (is that the right word here?)

    what a stunning creating, captured stunningly. I would guess that you are a member at the zoo to be frequenting it so often.
