Protecting The Kill
Here’s a rare action shot of a leopard in action! I say it’s rare because we watching this gal lounge around for hours! They are super-lazy… but in a flash, she shot right up the tree to protect a warthog kill she had hung up there earlier when a bird of prey started circling around.
It would have been so awesome to see the leopard leap off the tree and kill the bird of prey. That was a little too much to hope for, though!
It was another extremely long photo walk! Often times these things go way longer than I expect. Thank goodness it was not the hot season… this is where the group said their goodbyes and everyone went their separate ways. I got one final shot before heading out myself…
