Kuwaiti Wild Cat

Kuwaiti Wild Cat, by Majed Sultan Ali, Kuwait City, KuwaitThis is sooo cool!

Thanks to 3quarksdaily, Walhydra has stumbled onto this gorgeous photo from the 2009 National Geographic Traveler Photo Contest.

Here's the description from the Traveler site:

Merit Award: Majed Sultan Ali, Kuwait City, Kuwait
Nikon Coolpix Digital Camera and a Bogen National Geographic Prize Package

Majed Sultan Ali, a computer engineer, photographed a wild cat in Kuwait's Subah reserve. Noticing flying ants in the area, he waited for one to enter the frame before shooting. (Nikon D300 camera, Nikkor 200-400 mm Vr lens at 400 mm, exposure at 1/640 second, f/5.6, ISO 320)

Again this year, Traveler partnered with Photo District News on the ultimate travel-photo contest. More than 4,000 amateur shutterbugs entered 14,647 images in our World in Focus competition.
The photos are all excellent.Such a beautiful world!

And so it is.

Bless├Ęd Be.
