Description: The beautiful leopard Natito grooms her cub

Story from behind the lens: It was a beautiful sighting. Natito was alone in a tree with a kill. We knew she had a cub and hoped that at some stage she would go and fetch him and bring him to the kill to feed. We didn't have to wait long. Natito descended the tree and walked about 1km before she sat and gently called for her cub. After a few moments the cub appeared out of the bush and approached his mum. The image was captured as they met.
