Description: A leopard so close we could almost touch it

Story from behind the lens: We spent 5 days looking for a leopard during a previous safari. When we finally found one, the night was dark and the animal was distant. We found this beautiful cat early in this trip. It was so close that you could almost touch it. In fact one of the cats came so close that our 8 year old granddaughter reached to pet it. Fortunately, she was pulled back in before mischief could happen.
