Absolutely hilarious!!

Slightly ashamed to say I am a #1 Pursueibus Panthera! Although I think I am ridding myself of this condition gradually mainly due to photographing in Thai forests!!

I love this. I can recognise every species amongst my acquaintances.

Personally, I am a 10 with 7 & 9 occasionally thrown in when circumstances require.

And another number 10 here.
I've learned to calm down (or perhaps I just do less landscape photography than before...), but it used to get me really pissed off traveling a long way to a specific site and then find out that local authorities have placed a sign or an elevated walkway, or even just a cut tree right in the middle of a beautiful landscape, making it extremely hard to photograph around it to get all human influence out of the image. Don't have had too much trouble with wildlife pics, though can't say it made me happy when I saw radio-collared Sifakas in a remote area in South-Madagascar, luckily I got some more chances elsewhere later on the trip, or a Cheetah with a collar in the Kgalagadi national park in South Africa. The latter case was anyway a bit too far off for any decent picture, and it was not the first cheetah for me, but still it's frustrating.

I try not to think much about how extremely frustrated I would be when (if ever it will happen) I would see a wild Tiger or Leopard in Thailand, and then find out it has a collar. It would be a moment I hope the camerastrap is firmly around my neck avoiding me from throwing the camera against the rocks, haha.

Otherwise I'm a very calm person, ;).
