Yes, we did see leopards in Botswana thanks to our guides. Some of the pictures were a little graphic and, to be honest, I’ll probably never include those in my portfolio. Just not my thing! We did get close, but they were never a threat to us. I hope these images show the terrific beauty of leopards.
I suppose this is your ultimate, classic, everyday leopard pose (if you’re in Botswana), but a favorite nevertheless!
What a beautiful physique and such a long tail!
The leopard blends beautifully with native grasses.
This one looks stealthy! He might have been hunting.
Weird . . . just coming to the blog has me “liking” the post without even me clicking on “like”. Not that I mind; those are beautiful photos.
Maybe just the title, Leopards, did it! They are magnetic.
stunning as always. I don’t really like the ultra graphic ones either, so thanks for NOT sharing them 🙂
You are welcome, Julie. 🙂
Wow! They are so beautiful. 🙂
I heard that if you see a leopard in Africa, you’re already dead. I guess you managed to escape, though B-)
Maybe the game park has changed that. It’s not exactly the same as being in the wild. You have people protecting you and you are in a vehicle, which the animal perceives as a single unit. I think there is good and bad in this reality.
Yes. Personally I love people being able to bridge the connection between them and nature, as long as the animals can be happy, too.
Yes, and I was impressed with the way we left no trace in our camps and when we were out in the vehicle. The lodges seemed to blend with nature too.
Something I’d love to do sometime
Thank you, Eliza!
