[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
We saw this is full grown male leopard under a tree. On the tree is a dead gazelle and he kept looking up at it. Perhaps the kill wasn't his. We didn't see him going up to eat it. When he first saw us he gave a powerful roar. If the lion is the King of the Jungle then the leopard surely must be the Prince. Beautiful animal.

Hi Sitthivet
This is really nice shot of this resting leopard. Nice pose colours and details.

Hi Sitthivet,

excellent shot. Very pure and sharp. great atmosphere. Well done. tfs. Steve

Did you take this from a vehicle Sitthivet?. That leopard looks pretty close for 400mm. The focus is perfect on the eyes. I love all the toning "grassy" colors throughout. Very nice shot...

Evelynn : )

Dear Sitthivet,
Excellent sharp image of an african leopard. They look majestic & magnificent. Great composition & POV.

Love it! Sitthivet.
It's a car-POV. And here it is a very good choice and not only in terms of photography. Quite close isn't it? And the roar and...this isn't exactly a social animal...
Very sharp! Excellent DOF. Natural colours. Nicely done in its habitat. The overall savanna colouration. Pfff...congrats!

Wow, what a fantastic shot of this leopard. I think they are so beautiful. The focus on the face is great, nice point of view too.
