2021-02-21: Leopard and cub

A few weeks ago I feature some images of a leopard on an impale kill (if you missed them, you can see them here). These images were shot about 10 – 15 minutes later in the morning; the leopard came out of the tree and relaxed in the grass a short distance away, and in short order, the cub came out of where it had been hiding to have a brief visit with Mom.

In the previous leopard post I mentioned that the sighting on the kill was a challenging one for one of the other guests, but thankfully as we decided to leave, the leopard decided to leave as well, so it wasn’t like we ended up missing out on a sighting. In fact, as the leopard moved from the tree to the grass where she met her cub, she had a bit of a stare down with a tracker on another vehicle, which was definitely a tense couple of moments (you can see that post here, with a few more images of these leopards).

Mom patiently waiting for the cub to come out of hiding.
Such a wonderful greeting between mother and cub 🙂
Mom is the first to head off.
The cub was quick to follow!
