One of our two experiences with a leopard.  Of course we botched the shot trying to use the super zoom features on the camera, when we weren't too good with it.  A little blurry, but a bad photo of a leopard on safari, is better than going to work.   Our other encounter with a leopard was about 11pm on New Year's Eve, being stalked a bit while returning from the outhouse.  It seems that 2 leopards were probably mating about 10 feet away from our tent that night.  Growllll.
