Solitary

by Brendon Cremer

We photographed this large male leopard after following for a short time after he left his kill, he was walking ahead of the vehicle so not great photographically but we had an idea he was heading for water at a near by water hole. Our predictions were right and we managed to get some great images of him drinking before he left back to his kill and we headed back to our lodge.
Equipment: Canon EOS 1D Mark II, Canon 70-200mm f4 L
