This is a superb shot. The composition is great - legs crossed, sad dolefull expression - great. Love the fur detail too. The low vantage point works well. A beautiful animal and image.

I agree with the other comments - another good example of proper use of fill-flash. It's not everyday that you get to see an image of a Liger.

I just love his expression. Great job with the eye contact too. The lighting, too, is soft and complimentary.

Bill, it's hard to look away from this photo! It's just so full of expression and so nicely done! :0) I don't think I have ever seen or even heard of a Liger before...glad I got to see one thru your eyes. WONDERFUL! CONGRATS!
