Remembering the Marula Leopard

Today, we flash back all the way to July 2012 to remember this spectacular leopard encounter near Skukuza in the Kruger National Park


This is our second entry into the 5 Day Black-and-White Photo Challenge. There are only two rules for this challenge:

1. On 5 consecutive days, create a post using either a past or recent photo in B&W.

2. Each day invite another blog friend to join in the fun.

i AM Safari” is the brilliant blog of another of de Wets Wild’s long standing friends, Maurice Hovens. Like us, Maurice and his family loves exploring earth’s wild places. Maurice, we hope you’ll accept our invitation to join the 5 Day Black-and-White Photo Challenge? If not, at least please see this as a token of how much we appreciate your friendship and support!

    Sjoe – ek dink dit is die stunning-ste foto wat ek nog van ‘n luiperd gesien het. Nooit gedink dit sou so lyk in B&W.

        It looks like he (he, yes?) was staring at you, was he? Was he saying, “Are you serious? You want to take my photo before I put my makeup on”. I almost could hear it. 😉

        Definitely a big male this one Helen, the female was a lot more shy and only came into the open for very short periods. He on the other hand kept his eye on me, marking his territory and making sure I knew who was in charge of this patch of Africa…
