Description: A leopard rests in the crook of a tree after filling it's belly with wildebeest.

Story from behind the lens: This is one of my favorite shots from my week in the Mara, the leopard looks so content. We had been watching this leopard for a few days waiting for it to come down from the tree. Unwilling to share it's kill, a wildebeest, it had dragged into the tree with. Every once in a while the leopard would get up and move to a branch off to it's left to feast on wildebeest.
