Phokojwe,

It was that. In this photo the baby is feeding, after which mom put it into the rocks and went out to hunt. I assume.

This photo was taken just south of Satara. The cat was in the grass and the elephants came all around it. She/he just sat quietly until they passed. Sorry about the quality of the photo but it is a unique perspective.

No need to apologise :) The :cam: captures the moment exactly as like it was.

Love the natural 'elephant frame' around the leopard :lol:

Nice one, Jan van Wyk. :clap:

bshepardson, you have some superb captured moments with leopards; that mom with the tiny baby is a rare life moment unlikely to be repeated, and a great perspective of the leop through the moving ellies. :clap: :clap: Great stuff; perhaps that theory that foreigners always have the best luck is being reinforced with these contributions? :wink:
