Perhaps a 'marmite' shot, or not... but this was shot deep in the bush, light was ridiculous with little, or no opportunity until this female Leopard moved position and then one spot just worked. As she lay on the ground what she was focused on was her cub playing and learning about her new environment. Little did we know that this would be the last we ever would see both this female and cub, she was never seen again in the area or surrounding properties.

Thanks to those who viewed or commented on the previous posting.

Yes, probably a marmite shot, but I like it, Steve. I have a very similar one that I took a few years back, and I still like it, I am all for looking for a different angle/perspective on wildlife shots!

Quite the close-up- that eye is amazing. Highly unusual and interesting.
