#5 MasaiMara Big Five - leopard

Posted by
kiwisa (North Shore, New Zealand) on 20 August 2018 in Animal & Insect and Portfolio.

In Africa, the big five game animals are the lion, leopard, rhinoceros, elephant, and Cape buffalo. We were fortunate to see the Big 5 in 24 hours - this is the last of the five.
I know you can just see his legs, but it would be another few days before I saw the face of one of these beautiful animals. However, to see the legs and tail hanging on a branch half way up a tree, was a regular sight. There was always the prey a little bit further up the tree.

A glorious animal image that makes us interested to see the rest.

It's great to even see this. Cat beasts are beautiful animals.

Leopards like climbing on trees to be able to spy on a future prey. I like this beautiful animal. Have a good day Frances

@By Marie: Yes Marie, I saw them often in trees, but usually because they had hidden their prey up there.

Okay...The joy of anticipation, they say, is greater than the joy of possession!! The capture here of the feet and tail is vivid !!!
