The Prowling Fossa by PictureByPali The Prowling Fossa by PictureByPali
The fossa (Cryptoprocta ferox) is a cat-like, carnivorous mammal that is endemic to Madagascar

To read more about this animal [link]

This picture was taken at Parken Zoo Eskilstuna in Sweden With a Nikon D800 and a Nikon 70-200 F 2.8 Lens

The picture was taken through glass....

This is a New animal to Parken Zoo and the enclose makes it very very hard to take a good picture... When i see this animal i think of King Julian from the movie Madagascar :)

Pls comment on what´s is good and bad so i can become better until next time ill try to take picture of the Fossa

Again, this is one of the reasons I really enjoy your photography. You not only capture action and movement, but grace, expression, and beauty, as well as photographing animals that are not often photographed, such as the fossa and the dhole. The fact that this is through glass is astonishing, because it doesn't appear that way at all.
