A closer look at a wild animal. Not a monkey that will be too easy...

Challenge #23 in the Simple things that we love series. Hosted by Yochi23.
Challenge has finished
As the title says. Please show us a very closed look at the face of a wild animal. Not the whole body and not an animal far in the distance. The animal must take at least 70% of the frame. I am not going to measure the percentage or to D.Q. if it is only 65% but just to clarify the idea of the challenge.
