2019-04-21: Leopards Playing

While this leopard sighting was almost two years ago, it feels both like a lifetime ago, and also like it was yesterday.  I find it interesting how the same experience can occupy those different spaces, seemingly at the same time.

This was the second to last day of my last safari, and the photos don’t need too much commentary.  Our ranger took us to a leopard and her two cubs that were deep in a ravine, and while we perched, parked on the side of a rather steep slope, the cubs went about their day, playing, chasing, exploring and occasionally, snuggling up with their Mom.

I hope you enjoy my selections for today.  Wishing everyone a fantastic week ahead.

A fallen tree makes an excellent perch to look out over the ravine.

A very intriguing tail.  A moment after this, it got a little chomp!

It was wonderful to watch Mom get in on the game, and start to chase the cubs around.
