It's Hot

We're having unusually warm temperatures.
Just half past nine in the morning and this Amur Leopard is already panting and lying in the shade.
Only the humans are crazy enough to walk around in the sun.
Taken through mesh and water mist spray.

1/640s f/5.6 at 400.0mm iso3200 full exif

Nice comp, Walter. We hit a record 109 yesterday, and I was feeling sort of the same as this poor sole.

He's a beauty. He does look like he's uncomfortable in the heat. Wonderfully captured with all the impediments. V.

I like the cool cast of this image, although it makes me think he shouldn't be panting like that (but looks are deceiving)! Excellent capture of this poor, hot leopard. V.

Superb shot in the circumstances, Walter. *V*
Not the kind of heat I'd be inclined to venture out in!
