Description: Saved on the palm tree

Story from behind the lens: Mara Triangle. January 2023. Hunted by 3 lionesses, a leopard owes its salvation only to a small palm tree on which it found refuge. He spent the whole day there, from 10.00 am until 7.00 pm, the lionesses not moving from the bottom of the tree. I had to leave at nightfall. Nothing has changed during all this time. I hope that during the night, the lionesses gave up and that this leopard managed to escape.
