This was such a wonderful moment, on our way to Busanga Plains our guide spotted this Leopard.
The first I had seen in daylight and at rest. The remains of a Waterbuck is beyond the Leopard. Powerful and sleek we were in for a treat !!

Perhaps at rest but keeping a wary eye on what's happening around: great to see a magnificent big cat in it's natural environment, Ron.
What a stimulating experience this must have been.
Ronnie.

An amazing animal relaxed in it's own environment. From the thumb it was quite hard to spot, natures camouflage working well.
