Thank you, he was watching my 20 year old daughter intently, the guide said it was just because she was the smallest.

Both are good, but I really love the cougar! Is this the one out in Keensburg? I've been dying to go out there.

Really nice shots, the intensity of the stare on both is amazing, and well captured.

I'd consider a slightly tighter crop in the first, from the left and top, that would remove some of the blurry BG, and pull his eyes slightly off centre.

The second is again very good, but some of your editing is a little sloppy in the BG :)

I admit, my PP skills still need some work. What do you suggest for around his whiskers?
