Taken at the Big Cat Rescue in Tampa, FL

If you like these pictures and like big cats please support them in their mission to give these cats a place to live out their days.

Shot with the 70-300 handheld.

Obviously these were taken through a fence and there are some artifacts.

Beautiful cats. Good group of people. That snake looks a little more intimidating than the three I ran across last Saturday.

I agree with Sammy, that is a great shot. Too bad they wouldn't let you go inside to cage to take the pics of the cats. I agree with you Ramce, its hard to get good shots taking them through fence or wires, etc.

thanks everyone - I have many more to share;

you've probably heard that the black panther isn't truly black, now you will see that when the sun is shining you can see they are chocolate brown and spotted underneath the dark fur
