INFO ABOUT THE ANIMAL:

Name: snow leopard (Uncia uncia or Panthera uncia)
Location: Hight mountains of Central Asia (Hindukush, Himalaya...)
Size: 1.3 m long body, 1,3 m long tail weight: 54 kg
Diet: Siberian ibex, argali, wild goats and wild sheep, deer, boars, langur monkeys, marmots, similar small mammals and birds
Conservation status: Endangered (there are 4000 – 6600 snow leopards)
Interesting facts: snow leopards are considered to be big cats, althought they are quite small than other big cats | snow leopards are not able to roar | other name for snow leopard is ,,irbis“ | snow leopards use their long and very fluffy tail as a scarf to hide their neck and head in cold weather. Fluffy tail is also good for balance | they have small ears to eliminate loss of body heat | snow leopards have blue or yellow eyes.

Indeed. What beautiful eyes and detail. He looks quite small, though, was he/she an adult ? Very beautiful anyway, and well shot.

I love how we can see many different colours around the floor, contrasting with the grey on the animal. Amazing eyes those creatures have, also.

Nice job as always.

This is such a lovely picture. I love how colorful the background is compared to the snow leopard. It almost looks unreal as if all color was drained from the leopard and given to the leaves and bits of foliage.
