Description: Leopard ready to jump a river during the golden hour

Story from behind the lens: We had spent a good chunk of the afternoon with a female leopard feeding on a kill in a tree next to a river, so we decided to go back to that tree the next day very early in the morning. Our intuition was right. She came back and offered a beautiful jump over the river during the golden hour of that morning, before climbing in the tree. This picture is a tribute to the late leopard Fig.
