Little Girl

13th January 2013
I watched this young leopard for a couple of hours yesterday afternoon. She was very relaxed up in the tree but when the temperature dropped, she decided to come down. Having fed not long before, she had a very full stomach so made a bit of a mess of her descent!

I followed her as she scouted around the area and scented various bushes, presumably picking up the spray-marks of the territorial adults in the area. Eventually, when it was almost dark, she lay down in a patch of long grass. By this time, my camera could 'see' more than I could so it was a bit of a shock to look at the screen to check the exposure and see this piercing stare looking back at me!
