Doesn't quite look like the Cheshire cat Great shot!

Thanks, it is amazing how leopards can look so beautiful on minutes and the next they are ruthless assassins.

That's the stuff nightmares are made of Eric. Very well done though ~ Ron

Yup, for everything smaller than an adult kudu this is the last thing you want to meet up with..and why none of those guys ever get a good night sleep.

Just WOW! Wonderful shot, you created the ideal mood for seeing a leopard during a night drive!

Thanks so much Bob...have a spot light positioned just right gave me this effect...I had little to do with how it was positioned at that moment as it is really the only shot of the many I took that lent itself to such an image.

This is an entry type photo for sure!!!!
I assume the light was from a spot! Was it from your car or a different one?
Did you set it up to work like this?
I would like to see a bit more space to the right, but you probably tried that, and that is a suggestion only and not a criticism.

Thanks Don....this is from a spot from our vehicle as I recall....I don't think there was another vehicle in the sighting at this time. I have lots of shots and even some within a second or two on either side of this one and none has this impact or view. It was not set up but when I saw the result on my computer I knew it would work better if I was able to darken further some of the surround. There is room to the right but am not sure whether that makes it better. I will certainly look at it and consider making changes.

Beautiful image Eric, would not want to bump in to that in the night or day.


Thanks Mike...I agree, leopards are fabulous but they are also quite deadly.

Beautiful image Eric, nice play with shadows. I may have tried a vertical crop on just the head and shadows implying maybe it's body was facing your direction, TFS

Simply outstanding!

I have read that the images we often lock into our memory banks are the ones that present mystery.

I will not be forgetting this image for a long long time.

Voted!

Thanks Herb...I tried a few variations and this is what I thought worked best to portray what I wanted. I think it could work as you said as well...always appreciate your thoughtful cc

It always does Don...they are the windows to the soul as well as what can look right through you into your soul. I think and hope this touches one's atavistic core.

Dave, thank you so much for your kind words and support. I found, because many of my best shots were taken at night on this trip that mystery was often a feature. Typically night photography on safari is meh at best...this was different in part because I was able to take advantage of side spot lights rather than flash. Good guides that know what they are doing can make or break one's photography especially at night.
