The Chicken Chaser by PictureByPali The Chicken Chaser by PictureByPali
The Sand cat (Felis margarita)

Also referred to as the "Sand Dune Cat"

To read more about this feline pls see [link]

This picture was taken at Parken Zoo Eskilstuna in Sweden With a Nikon D700 and a Nikon 70-200 F 2.8 Lens

The picture was taken through glass....

I was able to take this picture during feeding time for the Sand cat the keeper had a dead chicken on a piece of string so the cat had to chase it around :)

Pls comment on whats is good and bad so i can become better until next time ill try to take picture of the Sand Cat

If you like pictures of Wolves; Lynx; foxes, Wolverines and other wildlife and have the time please visit my gallery and tell me what you think their is a good chance you find something you like

Sincerely
Pali

The cat is photographed wonderfully. I'm just glad that the chicken is blurry. Poor chicken! :(
