A leopard taken at the St louis Zoo. Very hot on this day and the temp got up to 97 degrees F. I couldn't get a shot of him looking at me w/o panting, I can't blame him. He is behind some fence and I manage to get it to blur out with a lower apature but the background still showed it noticeably, so I blured it out on a layer.
