And an exercise of attempting to stay in practice, as have been extremely busy at work and unable to "create" anything new in a couple months. As always, thank you for your visit and indulging my imagination.

    ** this is to note the absence of a couple talents that posted worthy posts to this and other works in my gallery. Makes me sad they have left. But it needs saying such fine talents like Jack and Derek will be missed.

    The leopard is awesome...i cant give enough praise. I know this aint Tarzan, but as a Former fan i will say that this concept along with the story is very very good. Though im not entirally sure Tarzan ever got the taste for meat. Still...stellar

    ...appreciate the backing of the piece Lupitta. As well as your visits to the gallery. Don't think of it as a dead cat, that feels wasteful. Hunters of necessity only gathered that which was needed, and not available through other means of production.
