An excellent memoir for the big, beautiful cat Eric. Your attachment came through in the various posts over the years, and I'm sure will not end with this one, as the memories will be with you forever Stellar set and commentary.

Very sad news. I saw her with a cub in June last year and another cub this year. And in Sept, 2009 I saw her drag an impala kill under a tree that ended up being stolen by hyenas while she went to get her 2 babies. I didn't get to see those cubs.

You have many beautiful images of her. Thanks for sharing them.

A great tribute to a lovely lady Eric. It is sad, but natural. At least she left some heirs to here territory ~ Ron

Thanks David...vote early and vote often
It's nice having the memories...just wished she could have just walked away into the sunset...hard to think of her being mauled.

Isn't it amazing how we can connect with animals in the wild and feel the loss when they are gone.

Wonderful tribute to her Eric, marvelous shots of her and some of her offspring . I hope you do get back to see what she left behind to carry on. She certainly was a beauty .

Birdie


Thanks Roberta! I haven't ever owned a significant pet (I don't think a bird counts) and so those feelings of loss that people have when they lose one is foreign to me....I've seen many leopards but this one because she was "known" and gave me such great viewing over time was special....I know it was only a matter of time but I would have liked her to go out on her own terms...whatever that means in a leopard's life.

Geeeesus Eric! You are not having a good month. September has not been kind. Maybe this October you can come up to Oradell and we could get drunk. Oh! That's right ! Neither of us are big drinkers.
Maybe we could get stoned. Oh! That's right! Guys our age don't do that stuff any more.
Maybe we can just take our cameras and and shoot some wildlife and remember that even when bad stuff like this happens, we still have our health, our families and that, essentially life is good.
Be well.

Al

Hey Al...yup September has not been a great month...I'm up for anything that is a little frivolous at this point.

Eric,
Your images of Olive really demonstrate the grace and power in which she lived her life.
Your commentary about the senseless killing of animals by humans is quite poignant. Wild cats like Olive (and all other mammals) live on the edge of survival. Their tight energy budgets and competition with others in their range make life hard enough.

Thanks for sharing your wonderful body of work, knowledge and sentiments.
regards,
bruce
