We were very luck to see a Leopard as they are very secretive. C&C welcome, exif intact

Of the big cats, leopards are my favorite. Probably because they are a kind of underdog... competing with lions to keep their own kills, etc.

Plus I love their appearance.

It must have been a thrill to get a chance to photograph one in the wild. Well done and thx for taking the time to share your photographs with us.

I especially like the last two - gorgeous animal and nice shots - it doesn't get much better than that. When were you there? There is so much tall grass - I didn't see much of that when I was in the area recently (just south in TZ).

I like the first shots, too. A yawning leopard!
