Female leopard climbing a tree in the Masai Mara. I waited about 2 hours for her to finally climb the tree and finish eating the impala she had stashed high up in the branches. Hope you agree, but it was worth every minute waiting!

Lovely shot - just spent three weeks in Africa and the only thing I missed was a leopard during daylight so I'm envious and appreciate your wait ! Smile
