[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is the same leopard featured in my earlier photo. There was another leopard in this photo but as it was obscured partially by the undergrowth I decided to crop it out.
This animal is always a special sighting in the Kruger park and it is very seldom that one gets a chance to take a decent photo as they are invariably on the move in thick undergrowth.

Hi Mike,

The leopard is without doubt the most impressive animal. Look at those eyes!!
The POV is magnificent and you show this animal in all his beauty. TFS.

Hi Mike,
Good job as it is indeed difficult to see these felines properly.
Good exposure and sharpness. This looks like a young animal, with his clear, somehow inocent eyes and not so large head.
Well done and TFS

of the subject, excellent luminosity of the image
