An African safari is a life-changing experience especially for a photographer. Being so close to animals in the wild is thrilling and this sequence was part of one of the most exciting moments we spent during our trip. This mother leopard and her cub had just finished feasting on an impala high up in a tree. These photos show them sated and cleaning up after their meal. We spent a great deal of time looking up!
Since part of this series is fairly graphic –naturally so– I have included a link to the entire set which is fascinating and amazing to see as the mother hoists the antelope up into the tree as the cub follows for the meal. Please click here for the rest of the series.
