Just finished in oils, today. Taken from a photograph of a young male leopard I saw at Kruger National Park, South Africa.
I have to say that on safari, the cats are my favourites! I have many photographs taken with a long lens and hopefully, a steady hand, to get close up and personal with these wonderful creatures. This one was found, early one morning, while staying at Mala Mala, in the Kruger National Park, South Africa.
Saw this fellow waking up, one morning in the Kruger National Park, South Africa.
One of those privileged moments when the perfect shot presents itself. Nothing matches the excitement of being on safari. You never know what might be encountered. The leopard is the most elusive prize of all! This one I saw while at Mala Mala, in the Kruger National Park, South Africa.
A series of photographs taken at Kruger National Park, South Africa, one early morning, of a young leopard.
You can’t see me!
Nothing like a good scratch!
……and a stretch!
OK, let’s get going!
I spy breakfast!
Yum, yum. Now which one?
Right, easy does it!
The highlight of a safari trip is when you spot a leopard (pardon the pun!). This oil painting is from a photo taken in the Serengeti, typically in a tree, where often will be seen the remains of some unfortunate impala or similar.
