Leopard and cubs

Leopard and cubs

I have been seeing this lovely female leopard and her two cubs fairly regularly over the last week. Most of the sightings have been at night or in very poor light so it was great to come across them in sunshine early this morning as they were crossing Fish eagle lagoon (now nearly dried up).

The mother is a very relaxed leopard and doesn’t mind being approached by the vehicle. The cubs are still quite shy though and were running from one bush to another and keeping their distance.

At one point she led them over a muddy patch of ground which she was able to jump over but the cubs had to walk through it covering their legs in mud.
