[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
We spent most of the morning tracking these Leopards. We were most probably following the mother, but we came across her two cubs. She leaves the cubs in a tree where they will be safe until she returns.

This is one of the two cubs. The older one is about 18 months.

The Canon 20D does'nt have spot metering, but a partial light meter on the cubs' face ensured that I got proper exposure in the shade.

PP - Slight sharpening, bit of levels and saturation. Original composure.

Buena foto, que suerte poder hacer esta toma tan cerca del "Gato".

Well Captured and well composed, bravo Johan.


Great capture, good-looking specimen. He looks like he wants to eat you for dinner!
