Grootkolk 1

I need help on these two please.


Female (I think) seen Oct. 2009 atop the hill coming out of Grootkolk. After she crossed the road we heard another leopard calling. It turned out to be a male who had just crossed the road headed toward Grootkolk waterhole. Very quickly moved out of sight, and only managed a bum shot, so not much help there but will post anyway 'cause you all are wizards at this so maybe you can pull off another amazing feat.

Female (?)

(I'm having trouble w/ the connection, so will enter these 2 pics of the female and keep trying for the last one of the female and one of the male)
