This is Xikavi, a female leopard in Sabi Sands

the shot was taken well after sunset and so I've had to remove some 'noise'

Leopard from Kabini/ Karnataka ....... This guy is named, "The Temple Male" because apparently a lot of times, he is spotted asleep on top of an old ruined temple in Zone A.

All these photos are fabulous. Some of the leopards I know intimately from watching safariLive and other's I've come to know through my own research like Bahati. ♥

I have many photos but since they're all mostly screenshots I don't think they'd be appropriate to share in here.

 

There was one person I saw who mentioned a male in the Sabi Sands named Tingana, and they were worried something had happened to him. Please do not worry. He is healthy and is the dominant male leopard of the area around Djuma, Arathusa and further south. In fact I saw him yesterday watching the sunset safari on safariLive. He is no longer in Elephant Plains due to a larger male pushing him out. :)

Totoa

 

Photographed at 9:40 am on 20 February, 2017 in Sabi Sands Game Reserve, South Africa, using an EOS 1D X camera and an EF 400mm f/2.8L IS II super-telephoto lens.

 

ISO 1600, 1/2500 sec., f/2.8, 400mm focal length, handheld Manual exposure.

 

****************************************************************************************************

 

Totoa is a small female leopard, fairly young, who lives in the southern zone of Sabi Sands. She's earned a reputation as an especially agile tree climber out onto the highest branches.

 

On a heavily overcast morning of steady rain, she'd been spotted in dense cover. Other vehicles eventually departed due to the inclement conditions.

 

Our persistence eventually paid off as Totoa emerged, casually ambling toward the tallest tree in the area where she climbed up for a morning rest, gazing out over the area.

I asked the guide to get out and move those annoying grass stems but he refused.

Hi

Here is my album on Flickr of Leopard shots over the last 18 months including an exceptionally rare sighting of a 12 year old female leopard killing a 6-9 month old Impala at a waterhole (PAN) in the Kruger on 22nd July -- https://www.flickr.com/gp/ajm057/232MXU - here attached is the first stride in the brief chase and a shot of the leopard about to bite the Impala's neck.
