Tickle my tummy

By ColleenA
Good morning....very hot in the game reserve today...33 deg and blue skies
We have had magnificent sightings of the Big 5 and more, including the 3 lionesses with four cubs. We also saw Scarface hiding in thick bush, he is well and has a male lion friend now ....hopefully we will get some better images of him soon.
Today's image is of a young 6 month old leopard who decided to show off his beautiful tummy to us.
Have a nice Sunday

Delightful image Colleen, it's very hard to imagine they are such ferocious creatures when they act like any other feline.
