The leopard in the zoo

When you are a child, experience you obtain often comes as a real discovery and makes you wonder at things adults are used to. In fact, poor adults simply don’t have enough time to notice and wonder about the beauty of the world they live in.

I remember when I was a kid, I loved going to the zoo and watching wild animals, which I knew only from the books and TV. But as I was growing up it became less and less impressive, I got more and more responsibilities and finally I stopped going there at all. So it was a real re-discovery for me, when last summer my family and I went to the Novosibirsk Zoo. I had never been to such a huge zoo in my life, so like many years ago I became so interested, that if there was no train back to Nizhny Novgorod leaving that evening, I would have spent the whole next day in there.

I took this shot of the leopard that day. Unlike other cats, which were circling around the cells, that one was laying quietly on the branch of a tree, and staring impressively at the visitors.

Photos, fauna. Wild animals and nature, a leopard lying on a branch of a tree and looking at you.
