Leopard Portrait

There's no substitute for golden natural light. This was taken at Mashatu Game Reserve in Botswana at dusk.
Equipment: Canon 1D mk IV, 500mm

I am an amatuer photographer with a passion for wildlife and macro. My addiction started a few years ago when a friend sold me her 7D at a ridiculously low price. I work in the corporate world but would love to be able to live my dream of living in the bush and sharing my passion with others.
