I took this picture at our local zoo. It is a Florida Panther. It is taken through glass. He was pacing and moving so much that after about 15 minutes I gave up and walked ahead when my wife called me back. He laid down right in front of me and looked right at me. I took the shot and he jumped up and never stopped again. I was thrilled to get at least the one pic! Once in a while we are lucky.

I love to watch them they are fascinating animals.

Nice picture of that panther, Trique Daddi. The cat's eyes are really trying to pierce you aren't they!

Considering how close this cat was to you when taking the picture, I bet you were a bit comforted by that pane of glass between yourself and him, eh? :-)

Yes, nicely done. Some times you get lucky... and you take it every time!

It's kinda sad that they are endangered, as they are beautiful cats.
