Halfway through my South Africa/Botswana trip. It's been amazing so far. I wanted to share my leopard find before losing internet again, though!

PP kept to a minimum - I'm on a terrible netbook and can't do much with it.

This little bugger was just hanging out in the kalahari, and paid no attention to me.

This shot was from about 20 feet, but it came within about 7 as it walked by. I just stood as still as possible and continued snapping...

I've got quite a few more shots from this series. I'll upload the best few after dinner.

Gear was a 7D + 100-400L. Thanks for the compliment :D
