Dear Pali, your photos are wonderful as always. It's truly a nice feeling to be able to see rare wild animals like this gorgeous fishing cat. However, I'm very critical towards zoos by now. There are too many problems when wild animals, especially big mammals, are being held captive, and from all that I've heard, I cannot support the concept of zoos anymore. Their main purpose is to entertain people, after all, and all the zoos in the world won't be able to stop the mass extinction of species that's happening these days (but most zoos don't even try saving rare species because they need all the money for keeping the ones they have and attract more visitors).

Because of this, from now on I will only comment on the photos you took in the wild or that show pet species. I hope you understand. :hug:

I have only seen a fishing cat once in my life, and I thought they are very cute. Very good picture, and I couldn't tell there was glass.

These fishing cats are cool!  They have remarkably expressive faces, this one looks a bit curious.

Fantastic shot, but if you don't mind a bit of constructive criticism, I feel like there's too much empty space on the right side and not enough on the left. The focus is right in the center, which would definitely work it the cat was heading straight for you, but at an angle like this I believe the image needs to be weighted more to one side or another. If you think I'm wrong, feel free to disagree. :)
