True Love by Chikrata True Love by Chikrata
Now it's not often anyone can say that two animals have a true loving bond with each other, but these too really do. This is Irina and Indeever, the Snow Leopards from Marwell Wildlife - UK who genuinely have strong love for each other, and he is so much happier now he's back with her, even though she's out of breeding season. It's so amazing to witness these two together. Happy Valentines!

Camera - Nikon D90

You have that way of capturing the animal's best moments and thank you for sharing them with us. Snow leopards being one of my favorite wild animals, i've watched a lot of pictures but rarely seen such beautiful moment.  This one definitly goes in my favorites and i'm adding you to my dev watch list

aww cute :heart: Here in one of the german zoos cant recall which one (I believe Magdeburg it was on TV)  there is a snow leopard couple who are together all year even when she has babies. They are so deeply in love too and have babies each single year. This year they had 3!
