The Snow Leopard

Those beautiful animals are an endangered species. They’re endemic in the mountain ranges of Central and South Asia.

I didn’t go that far. This photo is from the White Zoo in Kernhof, Lower Austria. A privately held zoo, specialized in all kinds of, you guessed it, white animals. Other than Snow Leopards, the zoo is home for white tigers, snow owls and white kangaroos. It even has a white camel and a white alpaca.

I shot this photo with a Nikon D7000 [Amazon Link] and a Nikkor 70-300 [Amazon Link] lens. Other than a some minor raw adjustments in Apple Aperture (discontinued), the photo is “out of the camera”.
