[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Took this one in the Sabi Sands Private Game Reserve - the best place in the world to photograph Leopards. I stayed at Nkorho Bush Lodge. This one was doing what most Leopards do during daytime - being lazy. She suddenly stood up and gave this nice yawn. I had to point and shoot within a split second.

great photo Hannes,
good capture.
Well done.

It's always great when people can capture animals yawning. Great capture!

Hi there!
At first glance this shot seemed perfect, and I mean like on the cover of a book perfect!
But unfortunately it seems like there was a branch in front of the animal... I know it is sometimes difficult to get the perfect shot in the wild from a Land Rover; the rangers tend to get upset if you want to climb out to get a better shot! Ha Ha
But overall a classic shot with good composition and great colours, and of course excellent timing.
Just a pity about the foilage...

Right moment of this picture.
Beautifull colours.
