Taken at Buffalo Springs GR Kenya. The leopard was on the tree for about 10 seconds before it melted away into the bushes - so there wasn't much time to get a better shot.

Thanks for the comments.

Yes Tracey I've been on a 2 week Safari (Samburu, Nakuru, Mara), which is now a fast fading memory!

We did see 2 other leopards 1 in Samburu up a tree that we couldn't get close to and another on the Mara - also up a tree and barely visible!

Hope you have a good trip Geoff - I'm sure you'll come back with sone great images.

Reminds me immediately of Africa, these shy cats are elusive. Framed perfectly to surroundings, great Natural history shot. Ron.
