Beautiful leopard. Awesome pics of the mother and cub. Great shot of the cub leaping over the water

I’ve really enjoyed the photos & video of the Tamboti female raising this cub over the last year. Keep up the good work! The beautiful Tamboti Female is a favorite (and the last daughter of Sunset Bend!) and seeing her raise this daughter is awesome! Already the daughter seems like a chip off the family tree.

Beautiful photos Simon, and beautiful blog. I love the first picture in particular, with her tail over her mother as they are walking together. Two incredible leopards, that will hopefully live long, healthy lives for many years to come.

Incredible photos as always Simon. Its a pleasure to be able to watch this young leopard grow towards independence. What camera did you use to take these images?
