  1. Photos like this remind me of how incredibly clever Nature is. Great shot!

      The more I see nature the more impressed I am. A lot of the animals in Africa had some clever disguise. Our guides were amazing at spotting them. I may have passed this lovely animal and not even know.

    Totally, wild! 🙂

    Why do big cats have rounded ears while our domestic cats, moggies and pedigrees, have pointed ones?

    A great shot of a magnificent creature! Fantastic capture of a difficult subject. Congratulations!

    • TBM says:

      Thanks Shutter Bug. I loved seeing this animal in the wild. Our guides spent hours tracking this guy and when we gave up hope, our guides spotted him.

    So stunning – I an green with envy that you saw him…green, green, green…

    • TBM says:

      Isn’t he lovely? You didn’t see one when you were in Africa? That was usually the talk at the dinner table after the safari, which crews saw a big cat. It was fun and I’m glad we saw leopards and lions.

  10. Kristina says:

    He’s so elegant! What a great feeling it must be to take a picture of this creature from so close, I would be scared though 😉

    • TBM says:

      The first couple of days in Africa I was pretty nervous. But soon I was so in awe I forgot my fear and just enjoyed seeing the animals and landscape.

  11. I love this image. What a great capture. To see such things…. 🙂

  12. Must have been scary taking this photo as well. 🙂
