  Amazing image and detail, Birdie. May I suggest a soft focus filter to take the edge of the teeth next time. ;)

  Oh, WOW, how did I miss THIS! A big hearty CONGRATULATIONS to you, birdie, on this scary, suspense-filled shot! Will the photographer make it out alive? In fact, where are you - did you??? Another top notch job, par for the course! Love the close-in crop!!!!!

  Just wanted to add a note - I was VERY DISAPPOINTED to not see The Lion Sleeps Tonight (also one of my all time favorite songs) and your Cheetah! shots in the finals. They both get my votes, as they are both amazing WINNERS! I'm hoping to see more zoo shots from you too, birdie!

  THANK YOU ALL - if I browse through my photos since I've started posting, I may say, I really have improved with the help of all of you out there. I have just written a note to Jim telling him that IMO the quality of all our photos is constantly getting better as there is a lot to learn just by viewing others' photos. You get ideas and encouragement - that's what it's all about!
