Born To Be Wild - A Snow Leopard

This was shot through the glass at the Bronx Zoo, NY, or otherwise I wouldn't be able to remain so stable :) There isn't much light in this area, and keeping that lens stable is very hard on a light duty travel tripod (I left the big one in the car so not to be overly weighted by equipment). In retrospect, I should have bumped the ISO up by at least a stop - maybe 2, and get a bit more depth of field. At the time, I did not have the 70-200mm which is a much better lens for these tight quarters and such a large cat.
