I refer to the image when i say 'old' as whilst i believe the Leopard wa a juvenile i cannot state for fact. 'Wild' due to the fact that, unlike the vast majority of my images, this was actually taken the proper wild and was not a mock-up.
Watched this leopard in the rain for some considerable time - whilst some of the so-called 'ferari safaris' appeared, ticked their box and shot off again in search of their next on the list.
Our patience was rewarded when he/she met up with his/her sibling... and eventually Mother. Did manage to get images of two together but not three.
Regards the image - if only i had known then what i know now... hard to imagine but yes, i knew even less then.
see exif - high ISO, big aperture, -EC in order to gain a reasonabel shutter speed (and isolate subject from background) - actually reading that, perhaps i did know what i as doing
the potential return is one of the key drivers for doing c. 12-14 hours a day
