Snow Leopard Portrait - Bronx Zoo

Snow Leopards have always fascinated me by their beauty. There is something really compelling about their eyes.

The day I shot this photo back in 2013, I actually wanted to try and catch a glimpse of the newborn baby and was unlucky, but I managed to see the male, even if for just a couple of minutes. The soft morning light emphasized the color of its eyes very nicely.

The Bronx Zoo is a great place to escape the noise of the city and spend time talking to the volunteers and learning so many new things about all the magnificent animals they host.
