I went to the Zoo for a walk, where I ran into two photographer friends. We spent a few minutes watching the Amur Leopards play.
Not easy getting shots of them as they are in constant movement. When I was processing this I could see my reflection in his eyes.
A highly endangered big cat, it's natural habitat has been reduced to a small area where the borders of China, Russia and North Korea join.
Only about 35 remain in the wild, almost all in Russia.
These three juveniles are very active and playful.
