I love the picture, i love big cats, i envy you in the pictures. The picture is very striking, i don't know why but with this particular picture more than any else i can recall, my gaze is drawn to the mouth and not the eyes which is unfamiliar. So whether this is because it is young and hasn't got the transfixed glare of a predator yet i'm not sure. Lovely composition with just enough foreground detail to emphasise the background distance.
All in all a great picture I would be pleased to have managed such results myself.
