Hi Daniel,
The flash is a little bright and has burned some of the whites, but a really nice shot and a fantastic moment to capture, it must have been quite an amazing experience to be this close to these beautiful cats in the wild.

Great use of the flash here with everything in perfect exposure. I think we saw the same young leopard the next day in the tree when the mother went out for a hunt.

Hoi Daniel, wat een ernorm lucky shot inderdaad. Erg goed gedaan. Leuk om deze fotos te zien na een bezoek aan een eenvoudiger game reserve. Mooie kleurbalans ook met de Nikon en deze lens, merk zelf dat ik daar nog zoekende in ben Reina

Hi Daniel,
Amazing capture! Nicely composed and good POV. Well done.
