I think that this is the same species as this image. They were shot the same day in the same area, mine have a cluttered background and are overexposed so mine can be frassed...

I just wanted to know the gender. They look similar

You picked wrong(mischecked gender) image. This one looks correct...

 
The one
says "Immature", maybe it is still young? I'm not that good telling gender just by looking at the tip of the tail.

 
Oh, I see...
Sorry I didn't look at well... Now your image looks like a male to me. So that means immature male? Maybe asking Barb S. is easiest way...?
