I shot this image some time ago, but what's interesting is that I used a relatively short lens because I was pretty darned close to this cat. In fact, I would say that I was about 6 feet away when I took this. I think somehow looking into a viewfinder gives you courage you wouldn't otherwise have. Not that I didn't have a fence and someone keeping an eye on me. Come to think of it, he was standing quite a bit behind me.
While I'm not an avid wildlife photographer, I can't help thinking about her world, and how we must protect all those that share it with us.
