James, thanks for these brilliant shots. You mention 4:3 and 3:2. How does one identify these markings in leopards? It’s a general question I realize.

Many thanks!
Todd

Hi Todd. The question of spot patterns and leopard identification seems to be coming up quite frequently, so I think I will write a post on this and use some of the leopards as examples. Watch this space. I think this is an idea for next Wednesday’s post (11 April).

I love lions (and want a real one 😉 ). However your pictures are making me realize the beauty and wonder of their smaller, spottier, more nimble little cousins! fantastic pix: thanks for the morning pick me up! Ok, I’ll totally take a leopard, too…i won’t be choosy amongst the big kitties!

Katie, I think you have just given me a challenge! We’ll have you converted to a leopard fanatic in no time, although I’m sure Adam will beg to differ.

These photos are absolutely stunning. You are so lucky to be able to photograph these beautiful creatures. I wonder what lens you were using.

Thanks so much Kate, we are incredibly lucky to have these amazing photo opportunities. This is something which I have to remind myself of daily. I think one would be hard pressed to find anywhere that has better photographic opportunities of leopards. I use a canon 7D body and a Canon F4.5 – 5.6, 100 – 400 mm lens. I find this an extremely versatile lens with its range in zoom. I will gladly answer any equipment questions you may have, so please feel free to ask.

Can’t get enough of these pictures and tales of Londolozi. You, Talley and Adam are doing a wonderful job capturing the ‘ethos and pathos’ of Londolozi…miss it very much! Thanks for keeping us all in the loop! The pictures are FABULOUS!

hi James

i was very pleased to see you are using a 7d with 100-400mm lens your photographs are beautiful
i recently purchased the 7d and use the 100-400mm lens but have been disapointed so far .i am finding my photos not as sharp as i had expected and expected less noise at higher iso’s. your photos have help me restore some confidence in the 7d . clearly the photographer needs some work.
