Someone say they like leopards?

This guy was at the road side, it looks like he had spied breakfast, but we came along & disturbed him. :-(

The road was raised up because of the high rain fall in the area, so when he went off the road we were above him, gave us an interesting angle, looking down on him.

He sneaked away into the bush & soon we could only spot him, because we knew where he was.

I am so envious, the Leopard was the only member of the "Big Five" that I didn't see in my 3 week trip
to South Africa. These are wonderful shots!

Foliage looks nice and green so there must have been some rain. Where were you ?

Thank you Garry Gibson, the leopard is a wonderful animal.

i-G12 No2 is one of my favs.

sirbridge We were in Kruger, at Skukuzu. There has not been a lot of rain in recent years & things are quite dry. To the point there were carcasses in the bush were animals had died due to lack of water.
The first day we were there was 107F The next day was 107F the day after was 75F! & raining like crazy!
Other parts no rain at all.
