OK...... we are driving along on a game drive in the late morning and we stop and photograph a pack of Hyenas.... and then we drive a few 100 yards further and we see a herd of impala that is very nervous and headed toward the hyenas..... the tracker says to the guide to "get in there.....something is not right!!....We kick it into to 4X4 and headed off road.... as soon as we did we could see a leopard stalking the impala toward the hyena...... not sure if you know this but leopards and hyenas do NOT get along at all...... about this time....the Hyenas chase the leopard up a tree and the impala all get away safe. so the seen that I am getting ready to present to you is the leopard up a tree with 4 Hyenas circling it.... it was pretty quick.... but a managed a few shots.....

Joe, those leopard images are STUNNING! So well done.

Thanks for sharing!

The wife is jazzed now too for a return to Africa. Just there two years ago and didn't think we'd do it again. But...yeah we're gonna do it.:-D

That last Hyena shot actually makes that blasted demon look CUTE. Both those shots are a wonderful view of these little beasties.

Hi Joe, great thread and images. Do you happen to know which leopard that is in your last sequence? I'm wondering if it is Ntsongwaan, a leopard I've been fortunate to see on 2 different trips to the Timbavati as he grew from a cub to an independent leopard and hope to see again next year. The notch in the ear and most of the facial markings look right but the nose and coloration look slightly different.

I will step in with a comment. I know this leopard, but can't recall his name at the moment. It is not Ntsongwaan. It's a young male around 4 years old. I'm thinking the name begins with M, but my mind is asleep at the moment.

I just sent Evan (our field guide) a message..... I am sure he can answer it

Thanks for the comment.

The Hyena may resemble a dog....But oddly enough the big cats are their closest relative..... When Buddy and I was at Kambaku Lodge, the general manager showed us footage of a single Hyena take down a adult male leopard and ate it alive.....Most animals kill their pray first......not the Hyena.....

They are a force to be reckoned with in their own right.

Joe
