The Most Beautiful Cat

Whenever you get back from a drive after a leopard sighting there is always a great vibe at the lodge and when you look at some of these images that Gavin recently uploaded to the Photo-Africa Stock Library you can see why.

Absolutely stunning image of a female leopard up on a rocky ledge. If I am not mistaken I think he got this image the day after Adele and I left Madikwe. The day before we had a very brief visual of her and to find a leopard like this is always magic!

If you look at the leopard's body you can see how well their coat camouflages in the bush. If they do not want to be seen you can go for days without even the slightest visual.

I love this image in black & white - it makes the cat stand out against the rocky background. Awesome!

For more leopard images you can click here. Amazingly beautiful cats!

As always I look forward to hearing from you.

Until next time!

I'm constantly wow'd by the photos here, trying to imagine what a rush it must be to see these beautiful animals in the wild like this. I have to settle for the safety of the zoo. :-)
