    Late afternoon and a leopardess known as Moma Namiri sits atop a beautiful kopje, known as Vultures Rock.

    She was born here and she also had 2 young 8 week old cubs secured here.

    This is looking really good Marc....It's like a scene from the Jungle Book...The trees in the distance along with the grasses blend in real good with the sky. Love the clouds. Although very small in frame the leopardess is easily spotted as she sits on top of the beautiful rock. It would look real good printed large I think...Well done

    Beautiful scene Marc, love the little leopardess. As well as those boulders, they remind me of the Kruger Park. Good thinking on techs and composition is great. Love the lush greens, hope we get some good rain here too

    Were you able to get a glimpse of the little ones?

    What a beautiful setting. Love everything about this one. The leopard is perfectly positioned to look over that environment. The clouds are great as well.

    This was from 2 years ago, and you might remember I posted quite a few of her around the area with her cubs, she unfortunately lost the male a few months later to lions, but happy to report her daughter Princess is doing very well, now 2 1/2 yrs old.

    Hi Marc -- What a cracking leopard scape, simply made my day. Impressive image . And on top of that, attaching that image with cub is making me envious of you.

    Fine image, TFS !
