[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This male leopard has just killed a cub (the white fur in front of him). There was a female with two babies from another male and if this leopard can kill both her cubs, she will eventually mate with him. The mother did her best to defend the little ones and one has survived.

Interesting story behind the pic. You have captured the wild expression on his face very well.


Nice picture even more when hearing the (sad) story. Just came back from a holiday in south Africa myself. Heard some good stories about MalaMala although I believe it's quite expensive correct?

thanks for sharing

Hi Dan, what a sad story. It is certainly a picture that tells a tale. Getting this shot in the wild is pretty amazing and I think it shows in the image. That expression on the leopard's face is so intense. Great POV and composition, well done :)
