[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A Leopard which was taken on my trip to Namibia last year.Very priviliged to see this one as they are very elusive in the wild.
I was hanging outside of an open jeep to take photos of him/her when it let out a feroucius roar.I got a few photos of it when it was growling but felt i was pushing my luck a bit too far.Got myself back in the jeep with a huge smile on my face.I will never forget this experience coming so close to one of these beautiful anomals.

Totally beautiful shot. You not only captured a great pose perfectly but it was taken in the wild too! Bonus points for that and I envy you your experience! Great work once again, well done!

Bonjour Andrew,
Superbe prise ! Je ne doute pas que le coeur doit battre très vite quand on se trouve ainsi près d'un tel fauve. Bon réflexe pour une très belle image. Gérard

Hi Andrew,
A beautifully exposed and focused shot, and considering the circumstances the quality is exceptional. A wonderful shot with perfect detail, and to do this in the wild must be an experience in itself.
