Leopard descending kopje.

A large electrical storm was about to hit, and perhaps through previous experience, a leopard takes this opportunity to descend a large kopje and seek shelter away from the heights of possible danger.

Elated to say after our beloved Govt finally released us from a self imposed 2 year lock out from ALL international travel, that I'm so excited to leave for a 4 week assignment Monday to capture the end of calving season in the Serengeti.
Armed with a myriad of Covid regulations/paperwork, half the battle will be just getting there unstressed, and will kiss that beautiful Serengeti soil when I land.

Beautiful scene, Marc!  I know how much you have been missing your Africa trips, so I wish you safe and as stress free as possible journeys - and of course, wonderful sightings when you get there.  :)

Great inclusion of the habitat, it tells the story.

Love the environmental aspect of this shot-very dramatic with the storm clouds...and of course the beautiful leopard.
