On Cheetah in the ZOO - Lion, Tiger, Jaguar, Cheetah... challenge (1 comment in total)

Now, that is the portrait of a hunter. That killer gaze is focused on its next prey and the cheetah is tensed, low and ready to chase.

On cheetah in the ZOO - Lion, Tiger, Jaguar, Cheetah... challenge (2 comments in total)

Cheetas have the black tear that runs down from each eye and goes past the back of the mouth. They're also more slender and lighter of weight than leopards. This one is a leopard: nice photo and it does have the look of a predator.

On The Boring Cat Challenge :) With Rules !!! challenge (10 comments in total)

I, too, am a cat lover. There is no such thing as a boring cat or picture. But I think the wording of the rules would have better served the purpose of your challenge if you had asked for pictures of action cats. The majority of pix in this challenge still shows cats that are lying down or looking bored with their lives. They are fast, agile preditors; they ambush, play, climb, cuddle. They entertain and make us laugh.

I'm surprised this was not thought of before. They look like the Packmeyers that I used to put on my pistols; made gun handling very comfortable and offered a more steady control when shooting. I wonder if it enhances one's comfort, control, and aim. I'm not sure I would put holes in my cameras. Packmeyers always fit perfectly on a pistol without damaging the firearm.

Flying things. My pitchers used to take out the wasps on my front porch.

There is a difference between Leopards and Cheetahs. This is a nice pic, but it is a Cheetah.

On Ode To Spot : Please read ALL the rules before entering challenge (7 comments in total)

I love it. I expected cats because "Ode to Spot" was the title of Data's poem for his cat. But after reading where you got the title, I realized that you are probably not a Trekkie. Well, I like cat challenges anyway and I'll be back tomorrow to vote on it.

On Dormant for Now in the Volcano! challenge (1 comment in total)

This is an absolutely beautiful photo. I would give it 5 stars, but it is supposed to be erupting - not dormant.

On Double Daffodil in the Flower challenge (1 comment in total)

I never had daffodils like that! Is that a designer flower or did it just happen that way, like a miracle? You should propogate that bulb! Oh, yeah, A+ for your photography. Thanks.

On black eyed susan (1 of 1) in the Flower challenge (1 comment in total)

Good focus, lighting and balance. Black eyed Susans are one of my favorite flowers. But if you'd like to sell it or hang it in my living, room, please dust off the aphids and other crawlies that are on the petals before preserving this beauty for posterity.

I usually dont care to look at pieces of a flower because I really like to see the whole of its beauty. But you have made an exceptionally great close up by crawling down into the moutn that I thought that I might get eaten! It's beautiful!

It's focused well. The darker backdrop enhances your subject. And you have good clarity of detail in the lighted areas as well as in the shadowed areas. Good work.
