The serval, Leptailurus Serval, known in Afrikaans as Tierboskat, "tiger-forest-cat", is a medium-sized African wild cat. DNA studies have shown that the serval is closely related to the African golden cat and the Caracal. It is widely distributed South of the Sahara and was once also found in Morocco, Tunisia, and Algeria. White Serval are very rare, never having been found in the wild.
Half Portrait of Puss Pinner wrote: A second attempt at trying to transfer some standard portrait techniques resulted in this feline equivalent of the 'half portrait' shots that I've seen done quite well elsewhere. No portrait shoot is complete without the traditional black and whtie conversion and here I've used the conversion process to really pull out the contrast in the fur.
