    Congratulations Grant!!!

    Canon 1Dmk4, Canon 300 f2.8IS, handheld. 1/3200s at f5.0, iso 250. Cropped, and processed in ACR 6 and CS5. Image taken at Chitabe camp in the Okavango Delta, Botswana on a recent photosafari. This young leopard was trapped in a tree by a pack of African wild dogs for a while. I took this shot as she was snarling her defiance toward the dogs below. The image was taken in the later part of the morning, and light was quite bright. I shot fast shutter speeds as there was no way to predict when things might happen quickly and I wanted to have enough shutter speed to capture any action.
    Cheers
    Grant
