Time to tighten the fuel cap? Typhoon fuel leak

The following picture was taken by Giovanni Maduli on Feb. 10, 2011. It shows a Eurofighter Typhoon of the local based 4° Stormo leaking some fuel from the tail tank (for those who might think the aircraft is dumping fuel, the answer is no, since the F-2000 is not equipped with fuel dumpers).
