Photo of the Day! Amur Leopard!

Nikon D90, Nikkor 70-300VR, @ 270mm, ISO 800, f/6.0, 1/500 
Continuing with the big cats theme this week I have an Amur Leopard. This is obviously another captive animal since it is estimated that there are only 30-35 animals remaining in the wild. This leopard's natural habitat is forests of Korea, northern China and eastern Russia. You can check out ALTA, the Amur Leopard and Tiger Alliance to learn how to support this threatened species.
