p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Cats not birds


Frustrated by recent unsuccessful attempts to capture local avian wildlife (and encouraged by Eric's felid fascination), I thought I would post some images of a leopard from last summer at the Sabi Sands. We encountered this female waking up from a late afternoon nap, and followed her as she tracked an impala.

Thanks for looking.

Greg

Thanks, Tom! I was unable to capture any "circle of life" images...this hunt ended well for the Impala.

Thanks, Tam! It was an amazing experience; I envy photographers who live in South Africa and get to do this routinely.

Thank you Ken. This was on the last day of a trip in Sabi Sands, and a wonderful way to finish.
