Leopard (hiding in plain sight)

Panthera pardus pardus


Can you find him? Each successive picture give a closer and better view, very much how this cat was revealed to us. The leopard is the most sought after of the 'BIG-5' among safari goers and for good reason, as they are extremely difficult to find, and many people visit Africa multiple times without making a sighting of this elusive big cat.


Chobe. It was by the network of guides, who contact each other via radio that found this lovely cat


This is one of two spottings for the same cat, as I got 50 photos and couldn't pare down to 6

Ashley, you have so many I'm jealous of: Hartebeast, sunbirds, all the frog and snakes :)

I dont think people generally realize how they can hide in plain sight. I know I didn't... not sure if I"d have spotted this on my own.
