Stare of a Predator

Amur LeopardPanthera pardus orientalis

Shari and I went to the zoo today to see if we could add to the donations we are giving to them.

This is by far my favorite of the day - make sure to check out the large view. Or See It On Black (thanks, FD!)

    Wow Marty!! If you pull this shot up in the "original size" and look very carefully at his eye, there you are, kind sir, in the eye of the tiger! What an amazing self-portrait. How cool is that!!! The artist captured in his art - one and the same. Or, is it merely the shadow of my imagination??? Nope, there you are.........
