Seldom that you see a Lion and Leopard so close to one another in the same picture. It is so sad that Langklaas is no longer with us. :cry:

Beautiful picture WillieV! That little one has such a curious expression on his cute little face! :clap: :clap:

There is so much emotion in the picture WillieV but just as much tension. Well captured :clap:
