    Finally got a chance to get to the zoo and see the newly-added Amur Leopards recently. Previously I'd gone to the zoo with plans to observe these magnificent and rare cats, but they were off display due to windy conditions. Seeing all of the zoo and amur leopard shots popping up recently, I felt like sharing a couple of shots.

    Unfortunately they were staying pretty well put up in one of their "trees" and not really presenting any opportunity to capture them without fence in the background. Obviously as tree-dwellers they've got great climbing ability.

    Great to see another set of Amur's, I just posted a picture of one of ones here in Oregon (my Something Rare thread). I'm kind of lucky the enclosure at our zoo has no chain link for the Amur, stone walls on two sides an glass on the other two. Great shots, I love the first picture where he is "hiding" behind the tree.
