Description: Faulu , The young Leopardess daughter of Fig! Her eyes are so captivating , you cant help but spend hours with her.

Story from behind the lens: On a scotching hot day we had little luck in finding any Big Cats . On the way back to camp our lucky to see her tail flicker and we got an incredible sighting of Faulu just resting on the tree. The Sound of the water in the stream below made for one of the most calmest wildlife sightings. The tree stretching across the stream made the setting quite unique. We spent more than 4 hours with her. She finally decide to walk into the light as the sun was beginning to go down. She was ready to look for her next meal. She stretched and begun her walk down. I managed to capture her paw as it enter the ray of sunlight still shining on part of the tree.
