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. #1355907

I relly love this portrait of a Liger! The pose is excellent for this composition, Bill!! #1356036

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. #1490484
