Stunning image Grant. We were fortunate to view the Tambotie female and her cub last year. She has grown quite a lot.

Thanks Marinda. You are very lucky to have been able to witness them together. She is growing up fast as she nears that age of independence.

I fully understand how you can spend years waiting for one photo, I have spent quarter of a century waiting for my caracal …

Thanks Jeff. We were just very lucky with where the angle of the vehicle was position and where we the leopards would drinks.
