That is a real cutie. :D

When a windscreen has to do.

We were driving the Voortrekker road on our last day. The road was disappointing and quiet. We were about to make a U-turn when this appeared. :dance: :dance: :dance:

One of my best leopard sightings. It was a relaxed leopard at the beginning of the Voortrekker road. It lay quite still and allowed us to take some pictures. There was only one other car.
