And an 18 month old male leopard poses and stares my way whilst atop a large termite mound, surveying potential Reedbuck.

Bushman Plains NG 12 concession- Botswana

Nikon D500
Nikkor 500 f/5.6 PF FL VR  (love this brilliant new lightweight lens!)
1/1000s
f/5.6
ISO1800

Square crops are not my favourite in nature photography, but felt this one works.

Cheers
Marc

A beautiful, detailed portrait! Agree about the crop. Looks like quite a great camera/lens combo.

He looks so gentle, much like a house cat! I bet the Reedbuck don’t feel that way! Nice portrait.

I agree the square crop complements this subject perfectly. Just lovely, the soft light is perfect.
