Description: A female leopard searching for her cub along the banks of a ravine.

Story from behind the lens: I came across this leopard sighting where the mother was determinately searching for her cub along a ravine's banks and repeatedly calling out to her cub. I pray she managed to find her cub as she left the area a day and a half later and wasn't seen again for the few days I was in the Mara. I made it a point to pass the area every morning and evening in the hopes of seeing both the mother and cub united.
