Thanks, surely the most endearing pic of a young leopard I have ever seen -- perfect setting in soft gentle light!

God bless,

Have just got back and had a sighting of one of the cubs in a tree the one day and then I saw what I presume was Baralong with both cubs the following morning on the ooooother side of the riverbed (ie photos not anything like Sharifa's :p).

I went to fetch hubby and better camera, was gone not 10 minutes and she was gone when we got back! :(

This was also about 3 km south of Urikuruus turnoff.

I will try to post what I have, just as evidence photos, to add to the database.

My first and only leopard sighting in KTP, so I was very happy. :)
