THE DAILY POST – AMAZING CREATURES

I love these amazing creatures. Leopards can disappear more effective than Houdini ever could, they can carry more than their own body weight up a tree, and they can see seven times better than humans in the dark!

THE DAILY POST – LEOPARDS’S LAMENT BY ROOT

This is the eighths video with music from the album ‘Under the Marula Tree’ by ROOT, a local band. It features some of my pictures and videos.

The music is composed to symbolize African nature icons (eg sunrises, Lions, Leopards, Elephants, …). This very special album is available on Spotify, iTunes, Apple Music, Deezer for streaming and download! https://root.hearnow.com/

All ROOT videos are available on their YouTube channel at https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCMXQv3FdJsIERJHHKt0rX2w

Enjoy LEOPARD’S LAMENT 😊

THE MORNING POST – IT’S TIME AGAIN …

I thought it is time again to share one of my favorite Leopard pictured from my archive. I took this picture 16 years ago. The world has changed a lot since then but these cats have not:

Powerful, Beautiful and Elusive!

THE MORNING POST – THE RIGHT SIDE

I was quite happy to look at this Leopard from the back side rather than from the point of view from the Hyena on the other side. Please note the impressive canines!

Have a good Sunday 😊

THE MORNING POST – THE ULTIMATE CAMOUFLAGE

The markings of a Leopard are one of the most incredible designs of nature. The rosette design of the coats of these elusive cats allow them to ‘disappear’ within meters/yards of the observer.

I have seen Leopards walk of a road into a thicket and just vanish. Only once they move (even as little as an ear or the tip of the tail) I was often able to locate them again. And believe me, they are masters in ‘holding still’ and being patient. Many times they were just gone, as a magician from a stage!

Enjoy your weekend 😊

THE EVENING POST – STAR

One of my favorite Thanda Safari Leopard images. What a stare ! It felt intimidating even if I knew I was safe in the vehicle 😊

Lying in a tree and relaxing – a Leopard speciality 😊

Enjoy your Tuesday evening!
