Hi AstroMatt ... here are some of the first sighting on Monday 27th - light not good and she was on the move a lot more than the 2nd Monday so not such great photos ... when we first saw her she was crossing the road and then climbed this tree and spent quite a while mooching around in it ..

Image

then she jumped down and crossed the road again - most of my photos have bits of the car in them ( side mirrors and stuff cause she was that close :twisted: )

Image

Image

but once on the other side she was a bit more chilled ...

Image

Image

Hope they help :thumbs_up:

Thanks for those Scouter :thumbs_up: :thumbs_up:
It is the same sighting but the clearer pics and more info are really useful. Much appreciated.
Hope its not too long till you get to see her again, after all you seem to have a good relationship with her....3 separate sightings to date, all within the year :shock:

Hi Astromatt,

just got back from the KTP yesterday - had a fantastic leopard sighting at Auchterlonie. As soon as I remember how to post photos, I'll upload some photos. Will also send you the Excel spreadsheet.

I can't wait to see those photos Myles!! If you need help with the photo posting just shout I'll gladly help.

We also got back yesterday from our weekend in KTP.

Saw Miera again at Montrose and two leopards just south of Urikarus. One looked like a young one. Will post photos later today. Your email is on its way.......... :dance: :dance:

Great news on the sightings Myles and Lion Queen. :thumbs_up: I wonder who the two south of Urikaruus could be?? :hmz:
I can't wait to see the pics, and thanks for filling in the spreadsheet, it really does make the record keeping easier.

As you can see no co-operation!!! They kept hiding away and we did not have that much time to spend with them!!!

WOW!!! What an amazing sighting of a flying leopard :mrgreen: :mrgreen: That is surely a once in a life time sighting!
You saw the Auchterlonie Female, the mum of the now famous Cagn (many sightings at Leeuwdril).

@ Lion Queen, your sighitng is a lot more difficult, i think i might need some time to properly compare some pics. But it certainly looks like one of them is cubbish. It's a shame when they don't come out to play like the Auchterlonie Female, but at the same time it keeps the mystery :wink:

I do know AstroMatt......... :wall: :wall: ...........and then there is that awful thing called gate times!!!!

I emailed you the originals, hopefully you can do something with them?? I wondered if it might be Barolong with a cub?? I can't remember that I've read anywhere of new cubs!!!

Thanks Astromatt and Lion Queen. Took a few minutes for the adrenaline to go after she had left us. Left my 9 year old son speechless for quite a while - now he can't stop talking about how close to his window she came :D .

Would love to hear the stories when he gets back to school.

Myles

Awesome Myles - stunning stunning action photos - you really were blessed :thumbs_up: and so glad to see Cagn's mum again - she was our first really good KTP leopard sighting in Jan last year - also near Auchterlonie :D

@myles - :clap: :mrgreen: :clap: Fantastic sighting and pix of the Auchterlonie female - quite bold she was! I suppose you would expect no less being Cagn's mom. :wink: Thanx for posting! :thumbs_up:

@lion queen - a weekend in KTP and you get 3 leopards! :mrgreen: I have also tried to compare your pix of the mysterious twosome - I am afraid I have very few good pix of leopards' throats etc. I hope AstroMatt can shed some light on their IDs once he compares your originals to his pix. Thanx LQ! :thumbs_up:
