Beautiful picture of a graceful and endangered big cat. I love the snow leopards.

Much appreciated. :) Snow leopards really are wonderful. They have a really distinctive head shape that, I have to admit, I didn't much care for at first. But they've really grown on me over the years, and these days, I love having the opportunity to photograph them. Gorgeous cats. :)

They are some of the most beautiful of the big cats. The ones I photoed were behind thick wire and the photograph came out poorly. And they were in a temp location as their new enclosures were being built at the time of my visit in 2010 in Winnipeg, MB, Canada.

Thanks. :) I definitely do like that the light was able to light up her one eye and make the colors pop with completely overexposing it. Usually I just end up with one eye overexposed and one eye completely underexposed. ;)
