Interesting facts: there are ONLY some 30 (THIRTY!!!) Amur leopards in the wild! | Amur leopard is the biggest from all leopard subspecies | Amur leopards have blue eyes | only female takes care of the cubs | in the wild, leopards live for 10-15 years, but they can live 20 years in captivity
ZOO: There are only 17 pureblooded Amur leopards in the World’s ZOOs – and 5 of them live in ZOO Prague in the Czech republic. 4 Czech ZOOs keep Amur leopards (Prague, Usti, Olomouc and Decin)

My first critique, so...here goes.

This piece really moves me... It's inspiring, and it has great visual quality. It makes me feel like I'm looking into the sad soul of a misunderstood creature. I'm really touched that the leopard genuinely looks sad, and the fact that it's endangered makes the photo even more striking. The colors are amazing, with just the right amount of light. The lighting illuminates your subject, and you have great focus. It's like you're kneeling right in front of it, and it makes me feel close to it.

You did really well with the entire photo. :) I love it. Great work.
