Actually, if you get close enough to the cage, they wires will be so out of focus that they won't be in the picture. This is probably what he did.

I like snow lepards a lot. I've never seen one in the wild (no shock there) but I've seen them (seeked them out, actually) in a variety of zoos. They have wonderful thick tails and great coats.

Thanks for posting and reminding me how much I like them.

Eric

Eric, I gathered it was behind glass because all the big cats are behind glass at perth zoo, it can be funny when they come right up and lick the glass. I dont think I would like to be the window cleaner on the inside:-)

From memory, the shot was taken in the open and the wires were behind.
