Happy New Year
Very good portrait Colin. I would love to go on a safari like this. You captured a dramatic scene with the leopard mouth opened. Good lighting, DOF and details. A bit soft for me. I dared a WS.
More extensive note on the leopard would be great.
Welcome to TN. I can see we have a new challenging member.
Happy New Year!

Terrific shot - so close and clear (and dangerous?). Very well done.
Great shot, nice small cat.
I tried a WS.
It's a beautiful mugshot Colin. IMO a lttle dark so I tries a WS. That's when I noticed blood in his left ear. See if you see it.

This shot is so nice, I like the way you've cropped the shot. I also like the grass on the left. A couple of the workshops where they brightened the photo are nice, I guess I'm not the only one trying to brighten things up! Very nice photos for TN!

When a driver signals that he needs to move on while you have leopord in your sights, you must tell him to take a hike!
You got a a beatiful shot here and I really like the composition. Good eye detail too.
Very well done and thanks for posting

I say you should have kicked the driver somewhere where it really hutrs! You never drive off from a decent leopard siting, they are far too rare and few between sightings! I speak from many years of "hunting" them in the bush wih my camera!
This is well presented as a scanned shot, and you caught a good experession on his face. Always VERY difficult to get a perfect framing off the back of an open game-drive vehicle!

Beautiful shot and clarity. I can't imagine seeing one of these beauties in person. I love how the focus is centered on the face of the leopard.
