Great pictures Sean the news of Anderson pushing south and Robsons 4:4 pushing north has me worried about the Gowrie male have not heard anything on him since early july have you seen him this last week?

Hi Blair, no we have seen Gowrie this past week, and for a few weeks prior to that as well. His absence is unusual and we will have to wait and see if anything of it surfaces. He might suddenly appear one day! Keep posted for the update.

Hi guy’s how do you think how big Mr Anderson is compared to the late Camp Pan male in his prime?

I think he is taller, but must bulk up , he will get there

md, from what we’ve seen in the past few weeks the Anderson male looks to be the same size as Camp Pan in his prime. Some have said he’s even bigger. I’m not convinced, yet. He is a massive leopard, though!

Beautiful pictures Sean,it’s good to see that Anderson is expanding his territory further into Londolozi.Have you seen the Gowrie male lately?I heard that he hasn’t been seen since July.

Hi Alex, yes that’s true, its been several weeks since Gowrie male has been viewed. We have seen tracks of a male in his usual territory but uncertain as to whose tracks they were. If they are not his then they could’ve been from a far north-east Robson’s 4:4 male or from a far south-east Anderson male. I presume Gowrie is still around, somewhere.

Hopefully the Gowrie male is fine,but the on 5th of July he was last seen in the north,almost 2 months….There are interesting times ahead for the leopards in Marthly.

Fantastic photography as always. I particularly like the one of the Anderson male, as the black and white treatment adds a emotional element to the image. What amazing eyes that leopard has!

Glad you appreciated that emotional-styled monochrome process. It can be very effective in dappled light when the contrast between light and dark plays a more important role than the colours of the subject and its surroundings.
