Leopard

Out to find a leopard this morning. After some hunting around, we found the carcass of a young kudu dragged under some bushes. It was a fresh kill and the predator that caused this should still be close by.

We drove off-road through the underbrush, over fallen trees, making our own path in the bush. Behind a rock was a long black and orange spotted tail, we approached to within six feet of a male leopard with a full belly laying in the brush, clearly in a food coma, relaxing and not paying any attention to us at all.
