"That's Very Luangwa..."

03rd March 2013
We were out yesterday and heard baboons shouting loudly while I was watching a couple of storks feeding. I drove on to see what was bothering them, knowing that the alarm call they were making was to warn of a leopard. As we drove up, I found the centre of the commotion and quickly found a pair of leopards resting in a sausage tree out in the middle of the plain. At this time of year, the gullies across the plain are impassable so we couldn't approach the cats any closer. I decided to take a couple of photos simply to identify the individuals, but found that the view through my lens was one of those wonderful and 'very Luangwa' scenes; a slightly overcast, rainy season day with a few rays of sunshine breaking through the clouds and lighting up the leopards' chosen tree.
