A very brave 10 week old male Leopard cub stands proud atop a kopje (rock outcrop), fortunately his protective mother was not far away.

I know cats usually land right way up and on their paws, but certainly a risk for this little leopard cub if he went over the edge - some kopjes have quite a drop. A sweet capture of this inquisitive little cub taking risks, even under the watchful eye of the leopardess, Marc.

I like how he is looking down into the abyss (at least for him). I wonder what he did next. Sweet shot!
