Kapen female Leopard Cub hides up a tree in Mala Mala
When we turned up the cub & mother were feeding together with the father resting nearby. Then 3 Lions from the Eyrefield pride turned up scattering the Leopards in all directions. The cub above ascended the tree next to our jeep so we were very lucky to be this close.

Hello Lyndon! Nice pet! Is it Yours? Sorry, it is joke. Wonderful POV and capture. Dangerous work. Be careful. Well done!

Very nice photo
Good composition and focus

Hello Lyndon,
Very good focus. Nice colors background wise.
I wonder how old she is and how you know it's actually a female.
Thanks for sharing this picture.

hi lyndon
Beautiful picture of this lovely leopard
Good composition

Hi Lyndon,
a masterpiece
so lovely expression. So sharp. So well exposed despite the sky behind which sometimes makes it difficult. Here it is just perfect.

Hello Lyndon
a very funny capture of this leopard cub with the tongue out and his eyes wide open
The colors and the sharp details are wunderful
