Incredible images of the leopardess at Nossob today :thumbs_up:

Big thanks to Danie and ritad for the zoom pics and AstroMat for the ID and info :gflower: :gflower:

When I saw her earlier in the morning, I was amazed that she stayed and drank for about 40 minutes.
I couldn't see how skinny she was and thought she was slaking her thirst after a feed.
I share the sentiments of all who commented before me, and hope she will be OK :pray: :pray: :pray:

THANK YOU SOOOO MUCH FOR ZOOMING
DANIEEE OR ????
:k :k :k :k

Only a pleasure! It was a bit difficult as the camera's response is slow and limited via the satellite link. Also the camera has got an 18x zoom which is not quite enough for clear id before pixelation sets in if one zooms in too much going into digital zoom which is not good quality.

Hope to spot her again!


Thank you Danie for this Information!! :gflower:

I have just gotten home from making my X at the polls. I see the leopard is back lying next to the waterhole as she was yesterday. I definitely think something is wrong with her because a leopard would not expose itself in the open like this for so long with lions able to see her from a distance. My guess is that she is either ill, from a snake bite or something or injured, which is causing her not to be able to hunt. I don't predict a happy ending here because sooner or later the lions will come to drink

I see the last image of Langklaas was posted at 12.35pm yesterday.

MATTHYS, is there any information from the Nossob Rangers regarding her whereabouts after that time? :hmz:
I could barely sleep last night thinking about her....

Nossob webcam set to auto-tour:

Due to requests for both scenic wide angles to see the sky line and clouds as well as other requests for close-ups, I have programmed a tour on the Nossob webcam similar to the other SANParks webcams:
It will
  • start on wide scenic shot to show the full view of the riverbed and skyline in the background
  • then zoom in to the water hole to show the full length of water hole (medium shot - the angle you are used to),
  • then zoom in even more to show a closeup of the left of the water hole (to see/id birds and other smaller critters a bit easier),
  • then zoom to right of the waterhole (still closeup)
  • then zoom out to full view of waterhole (medium shot)
  • then zoom out to a wide angle shot (where it started) to to show full surroundings
The webcam will pause for 35 seconds in each position before moving on to the next angle as explained above.

I hope this will provide good viewing for all tastes of our valued virtual visitors of this cam too!

Happy camming!
