Thanks everyone for your comments, votes and Congrats. I took this at the Little Rock Zoo. I loved the dust so did not want to crop to much off the top so showed a little more then below knee. But was more dramatic cropped this way. Thanks again to everyone for taking time to vote and comment. :D

Right on topic, and excellent use of light. Motion captured at just the right moment tops this off. Very high in my scoring.

Well captured. I like the back lighting. Some disturbing elements in the background, and I would have gone for a tighter crop (remove the belly and the jaw. Still, an 8 :-)
