It's nice and well composed. But from technical point of view - why F32?

My f was on automatic at the time of this shot, so I let the camera do the thinking here. I was hoping to catch the mood here and as I am sure you are aware, timing needs to be perfect. I had a very limited time on this Leopard as he was looking at Impala in the distance and moved down the tree seconds later.

Don't understand me wrong, Simon. This is a very good picture but at the size shown here but I'm sure it's a problem for prints in bigger sizes.
I can only say that high iso was not necessary here, because F6.3-8 is perfect for a portrait like this.
