Big Cat Attack, Part 11


Probably the hardest of the cats to photograph was this black leopard. The camera just will not properly expose for the black coloration, yielding photographs where the fur either comes out too light or just a black hole with no features at all. I think I finally got it right this time, so these shots came out pretty nice. You can even see that she's not really black all over, but actually has the spotted pattern common to most leopards, only her spots are black-on-black. She is beautiful, though, whether in photographs or in person.
