This morning, after having a ridiculously good leopard sighting, I felt inspired to go through my computer looking back at some of the leopard pictures that I have taken over the last 4 years. I gave myself the challenge of trying to identify my favourite picture of every individual leopard I have seen on Londolozi. Not necessarily the best in terms of photographic style, technique, composition or lighting, but my personal favourite in terms of the whole package. In other words I was looking for my own photograph of each of Londolozi’s leopards that will be engrained in my minds eye FOREVER.
* note there are a handful of leopards which I either have not seen or have not been able to photograph.
I have been a guide at Londolozi for 4 years, allowing countless hours spent trying to capture these magic moments; some leopards are seen regularly and so I have had many opportunities to get the perfect pic, others I have seen once, and have had to settle for a less then ideal photograph, but often it is these rarer, seldom seen animals that result in their own magic.
I hope you enjoy my collection of the Leopards of Londolozi…
