|this is a young male leopard eating a duiker in a tree. The mother had placed the duiker in the tree and the young leopard made 3 attempts before finally making it up all the way to the duiker. He tried to eat it but dropped it to the ground after a few minutes. The mother put the duiker back up in the tree again for him to have another try. It was quite interesting to watch the mother leopard teaching her son how to eat in the tree.|

very interesting and quite rare image. your observations and capturing the moments in the life of young leopard is commendable. good composition, exposure and details. Tfs.
What a great experience you had. In my year of being a regu;ar visitor to Kruger I have not been able to take a clear picture of a leopard. Well seen photo and well handled technically. Could maybe be a bit darker.
Brilliant photo containing very clear images of the key elements. You used your lucky sighting to produce a memorable photo.
Hi, you were very fortunate to see this, so nice. Very nice picture. Well done.
