Daylight Leopard Kill on the Mara.

 

This leopard was not hunting at the time when a young wildebeest unfortunately strayed into its line of sight. The leopard immediately ran up a slope above the wildebeest and then ran down knocking it over and grabbing it by the throat. The kill was completed in little more than a minute.

This was from one of my most memorable safari trips at Mala Mala Game Reserve, South Africa in July 2012. You can see more of these 5 week old twins on my website: www.wildliferhythms.com under the Wild Reality Section. The gallery is called Leopards V: Most Adorable Blue Eyed Babies.

Re-united (the female twin sister of the young male is also on the scene in other photos)

South Luangwa was a fantastic place to see leopards, with sightings on nearly every day on a 10 night trip.

We came upon this scene before the (pregnant) impala was dead. We saw the poor thing being throttled and then slowly eaten, foetus and all. I can still the crunching of bone...

@@insomniac oh my goodness! It looks like you were quite close, and looks like the leopard is looking you right in the eyes as though to say don't even think about stealing my meal! I can still remember hearing the crunching of bones when I saw/heard my first leopard eating a kill up in a tree at Londolozi in the Sabi Sands too.

Here is my favorite leopard pic from my trip to Botswana in 2010. Taken at Mashatu with a Nikon D300 (I have since switched to Canon).
