I am unabashedly a BIG cat person. By big cat, I don’t necessarily mean the sixteen through thirty pound variety. Although I’ll always remember the sixteen pound black cat with the beautiful yellow eyes who stole my heart against my wishes. Rest in peace, Dakota.
The cats I speak of here are the ones weighing in at hundreds of pounds. The cats who hunt lush savannahs, Asian Steppes, and dense jungles the world over. When I make trips to zoos, it’s without a doubt the stops at the big cat cages that relax me and fill me with awe every time.
If I had to choose ONE big cat that stands head and shoulders above all others, it would be the BLACK PANTHER. Having said that, I don’t have a photo of one… yet, but one day. Instead, I leave you with one of my favorite LION shots, take some time ago and as is my wont, given a bit of effects work.
Here’s hoping your Saturday unfolds silently…
