Description: A leopardess on a tree
Story from behind the lens: On New Year's Day, after a delicious champagne bush breakfast, we spotted the most beautiful leopard I know - Figlet. She is the daughter of the famous "Fig", and one of her most prominent features is her GORGEOUS turquoise eyes. When we spotted her, she was asleep on a tree, but after an hour or so, something on the horizon caught her attention. She first stood up and looked in that direction, but then she sat down. I asked our guide to drive a bit away from her and in front of her, so we could almost be at her eye level, and the result is in front of you.
