:clap: Lovely pic Polargiant! You have a photographer in the making there with your little one. Great sightings!



Thanks :) I went and had a look again at what I wrote and I need to correct myself. She spotted the leopard at first annouching that she thinks she saw a cheetah, then requested me to reverse the vehicle for her to have a second look. And to our amazement: leopard sleeping. It only raised head when I started to take photos. Needless to say, she earned herself an ice cream of her choice for it...

Have to agree with Raymond, B&G is buzzing ito leopard sightings.
