Caracal Sighting in KNP

Unread post by WildImage » Sat Dec 03, 2016 4:53 pm


I had to share this image. The quality isn't what I would normally post, but the rarity of the sighting meant that I had to put it up.

Taken on the S114 on the 29th October 2016.

Just to see one is such a privilege, but being able to capture an image was just great.

Amazing sighting - there's beautiful energy in the shot, even if it isn't as sharp as you would like...
