Thirsty leopard

Thirsty leopard

It can be tough getting good images of leopards in daylight as they are often in the shade or hidden away in thick vegetation – so to have one walking around in the early morning sunlight today was a wonderful sight. When I came across this young female she had been feeding on her kill in a dense combretum thicket and was heading down to a nearby lagoon for a drink.

Once she had quenched her thirst she jumped over the water and headed off into the bush behind me – a lovely sighting.
