Have never seen a serval cat before! Thanks for sharing. What WB setting did you have in the first one?

Stef, I'd have to check the WB setting when I get home!  The serval is a bit smaller than a Caracal and eats small birds, insects and rodent mainly.

When they can get the cages built (they need to complete another 5)  the Trust will be getting 3 each of 7 species Flat-headed Cat, Fishing Cat, Sun Cat, Snow Leopard (bringing the total to 14 I think!), Clouded Leopard and ......two others that escape me!

Cheers

Mark

Mark- the reason why I am asking about your WB is that some of your images posted in these threads have a slight magenta cast. (I have perfect colour vision as demonstrated here: http://www.dynaxdigital.com/index.php/topic,6733.30.html ;) ) So I was wondering about your WB or post-processing?

What a beautiful animal and gorgeous photos. I love his/her nose pattern.
Want One!!!
I was wondering if you used flash because of the shadow on the left?
