Description: The leopardess "Faulu" was resting in a tree when she spotted something. The leopardess was wide awake very quickly and fully focused on the potential prey

Story from behind the lens: I have known the leopardess since she was a child and I always promise to find her when I am in the Mara. A year earlier we witnessed the tragic death of her mother. We are all the more pleased to observe this beautiful cat again and again.
