Nice shot.

You shot through a fence by the looks of it. Can't be helped a lot of the time, but if there's any chance you can try to find a darker part and align it so you're centred on a hole and not the wire itself. If you wanted to spend more time, it could be possible to manually even out the lightness from the fence. The relatively strong colour may be making that show up more, and personally I'd prefer a more neutral look to wildlife shots.

Your right about the fence. While being at a zoo. And this being there most dangerous animal they keep. It was very hard to take this as avoiding a mesh fence was im possible Im getting in printed on canvas but will do as you advise with the colouring and removing fence light patches.

Many thanks for taking time to look and comment.
