Taken in Serengeti, Tanzania - March 2018

Sometimes the most amazing things will happen when you least expect them... That was the case with this leopard.
It was high noon, the light was too bright outside, and we were a minute away from camp to have lunch, shower and head to the airstrip to catch our plane back home. It literally was the last moment of our safari, when our amazing guide Noel spotted this gorgeous lady. She was enjoying the last few bites of her lunch up on the tree, and made us forget about our lunch as we admired her beauty...

Leopard

 

 

~ Photographed at 10:27 am in Samburu National Reserve, Kenya on 3 October, 2019 during a heavily overcast morning. 

 

The Leopard appeared without any advance indication as we were parked watching birds. She sauntered past with consummate insouciance, then was gone.

 

There was no time to do more than rapidly focus, click the shutter button and marvel at such a close range encounter.

 

•  ISO 100, f/3.5, 1/400 sec., EOS 1D X, EF 400mm f/2.8L IS II, hand-held

And that @Game Warden is why everyone should be a birder...

The same leopard as above - perhaps considering us as the next meal?
