A little departure for me of recent photos, this one being taken with a short sojourn at the Denver Zoo last week. I spotted two young snow leopards playing, then briefly alighting for a moment, followed by another swirl of thrashing limbs. The cold weather coupled with the brisk breeze was making these young leopards quite frisky. And even at rest, one was completely and fully aware of everything around him, including a photographer just out of reach... D100, 70-200mm AFS/VR, ISO200, f/2.8, 1/320s, processed in NC, cropped and copyright in PS-CS A note or two on the shooting - as with most zoo shots, this is through a fence, hence the shallow DOF/aperture to lose the fence. Light was mixed shadow, direct sunlight, and side tinted windows. Critique and comment solicited and welcomed. Always shoot. John P.
