Beautiful shot Colin, very fortunate to be able to get so close to such a prize. The picture is very sharp and the lighting is just perfect. Funny, I was just watching a leopard program on National Geographic last night and I'm sure they're not easy to get closed to. Again, this is a great shot.

Nice capture on this Leopard. From this pose it looks like he may have been suprised, or he is licking his lips upon seeing you. Good DOF,color, and detail. From the light, I am guessing it was middle of the day?

This is a great shot. I particularly like the way you had its attention. Also, I envy you for this shot.

Great shot, I love those cats. Maybe framed a bit too tight.
Well done.

Another great leopard shot Colin. You are lucky to have such a diversity of mammals in your region, I'm jealous. The pose is excellent and you have exposed him well hiding in the shaddows. If I recall correctly from some documentaries I have seen, getting this close to a male in the wild is a very special moment. Well done, TFS.
