ekoppen,
one very 8) leopard "just hanging " in the tree,
and one rather "weary" looking leopard, but such a lovely photo :clap:
Thanks to all for sharing your beautiful leopard pics :gflower:

Hi Hilda
Yes, it was quite exciting seeing them strollling down the road and we just strolled along with them.

Hi Hilda and Jan,
Thank you for your kind remarks. Yes she was a remarkable leopard. We caught just a glimpse of her two kittens as she hurried them away just as we arrived, never to see again the rest of the day,

I was sorry to see that you were trashed by Photobucket Jan. So many hours of work. What a shame.

...Only two more months until our annual return to Kruger. Hard to wait. We'll be spending six weeks there, return to the USA for the Christmas holidays and then return to Kruger the middle of January, 2018 for another four weeks.
