Great Cats of the "World"

By hendriventer on November 8, 2012 in Photography, Wildlife

On a recent trip to Etosha National Park in Namibia I found a Leopard resting in the shade close to a waterhole and decided to hang around in the hope of her hunting Springbok or other antelope at the waterhole.

After about two hours I noticed some movement in the water and so did the Leopard. She went to investigate and suddenly took a dive and pulled out a mating pair of Terrapin from the water. This was a first for me and also a highlight in my photographic career and I would like to share the sequence of images with you. Enjoy.
