|THE BIG CATS|
|Beautiful, sleek and graceful, the big cats have always fascinated me. They're among the most photogenic of all of the earth's creatures and my web search has produced some wonderful examples. Some of the pictures are large, so the page may take some time to load. Enjoy! Nancy|

|Animals give me more pleasure through the viewfinder of a camera than they ever did in the crosshairs of a gun sight.
