Thought I might just hear your opinions on this quick shot i did yesterday. Find it quite pleasing myself, therefore i need your comments ;)

Haven't been doing animal shots before, what's to aim for?

(And which one do you prefer?)
I like them both. The cat really stands out from the background! Normally I don't like animal pictures where the animal is staring directly at you, but the second one really works. I'd pick it as my favourite. NICE!!!

you can see me in the right hand side of the reflection from the chipmunk eye.... This would seem to indicate that I have too much time on my hands :)

Thanks...  the leopards and Tiger were shot at Nagerhole (Kabini), the bear at Bandipur. We also saw another tiger and leopard at Bandipur, but I didn't want to bore you!
