Eagle vs. leopard (in a tree)

(May 12th, 2015)

It is quite usual to see a leopard in a tree. After all, these big cats climb up there quite commonly and often bring their dead prey into the high branches to protect them from the competition (like a wandering hyena). But it is quite rare to see a leopard hunt in a treee. When, it is confronting an eagle, we reach great heights of weirdness.

Anyway, Paul Steyn observed such a behaviour (a leopard female trying to enter the nest of an eagle). But, in the end, even if the eagle flew avoding any risk, the leopard did not catch anything.

A flipboard for YLoveBigCats

(April 30th, 2015)

A few changes for YLovePhoto in 2015. Starting with the decision of adding a special complement to the web site for those who know and love FlipBoard, a powerful way to flip pages on Internet-based magazines. It’s even easier if you chose to use your smart phone: your magazine pages are flipped from the tip of your finger, to move from one post to the next, one image to the next.

View my Flipboard Magazine.

I’ll store there sets of links that I find on the web. I’ll try to make them appear in groups linked by an obvious common subject in the coming months (If I’m good enough at it and if you are interested enough).

I’ll start with a series (videos and posts) about depth of field, a topic central for any photographer.

Tell me what you think of it. I can’t wait to know.

Cheetah’s speed machine run in images

(April 29th, 2015)

I love the way cheetahs outperform many man-made machines in terms of acceleration and speed. But I also love it when somebody demonstrates beautifully how it works and gives us some stats and facts about cheetahs.

Lovely visit to be done to Cheetah’s Nature speed machine.

Tiger vs. robot camera

(May 6th, 2014)


A tiger is really a big big cat. But it’s also as curious as any kitten.

Never turn your back on big cats

(April 21st, 2014)

The big cats are wild hunters and killing machines, even when held in captivity for a long time. See how these ones (lions, tigers, and all) behave once they notice that a possible pray is not looking.

Ready for a kill at any time.

Tame, you said?

Hey! snow leopard! It’s time to sleep

(March 6th, 2014)

When it’s time for bed for the snow leopard and the camera is here to capture the moment:

Friendly battle with the lions

(February 16th, 2014)

Kevin Richardson is well known for his success in approching lions enough to share games with them like if they were big kittens (obviously very big, too). This time, with the help of a portable video camera on his head, you will be able to experience some of what is happenning to him when a big male lion runs to him.

Listen to Kevin explaining that the back of the ears have the smoothest fur.

Then, you’ll also be able to admire spotted hyena friend of Kevin (they aren’t cats, but they are much nicer than what you’d believe).

And remember what Kevin says at the end: “If we carry on along the same path, we’ll not see lions in twenty years”.

Is it really necessary to mention that you should not try this with lions not from your own home?

21 gorgeous photos of lions

(January 1st, 2014)

Most of these photos (from LightStalking) are taken in zoos, but they look gorgeous anyway.

Happy new year to all big cat lovers.

My GoPro against the cheetah

(December 11th, 2013)

That should be the title of this video where a wild cheetah goes exploring this weird object left by a wildlife videographer: a GoPro camera.

You wouldn’t expect a cheetah to be so cute.

Tiger drawn with a ball pen

Sarah Esteje has made pretty impressive drawings using only a cheap ball pen. Like this tiger.
