Too hot..

By rogerfry
We came across this magnificent leopard sheltering from the late morning heat, under a well chosen tree stump. (V4 shows in more detail)

He was completely unconcerned by our presence, taking no notice as we moved round to get different angles. A wonderful sight.

Brilliant images, To me this is how the big cats should be seen... in the wild... in there own environment... then you can really appreciate there beauty and power.

Thank you for those kind words Nathan.....I'm very lucky that I've been able to get to places where these animals live, and it's nice to know that people enjoy the results.

Excellent set!
