One morning I watched this female leopard using the low branch to scout the area for prey, a technique which I've seen her use many times. There was very little prey around, but eventually a few impala appeared behind me which caused the cat to turn and face me. Initially she paced along the branch apparently trying to decide whether to come down. In the end, she lay down to rest, but couldn't resist keeping a wary eye on the antelope in case they strayed into her hunting range. South Luangwa National Park
