Description: Shujaa returning to his land.

Story from behind the lens: It was early morning, right after we left Wild Eye Mara camp, when Jimmy our driver notices the tip of a tail in the shrubs and immediately turned the vehicle around. The tail belonged to Shujaa. He had just returned to his territory and realised another leopard had invaded. Shujaa was very angry, foaming from his mouth, ready to fight! We followed him around for a while, watching him searching for the intruder and marking his land. The photo was taken, when he was sitting by the river and still searching for his rival.
