One of the Five!

Well, I had planned not to publish a “Big Five” picture for ten posts. But tonight’s Leopard sighting changed my mind.

On the way back to the lodge we had a very special night encounter. This Leopard female was a few meters (yards) of the road in the thick bush. When I moved the game viewer a bit closer she had a good look at us before she disappeared  into the bush. Bheki’s excellent spotlight work made this picture possible.

I really like her alert expression in the picture!
