|Namibia Home <- Okonjima <- Leopard|
|One of the activities at Okonjima is visiting the leopards. My visit was late afternoon, which explains the changing light!
The leopards are part of Africat's work.
This is a young female leopard called 'MJ'. All of the leopards are radio-collared, but sometimes, as with the bottom image, you may get a pose which hides the collar, though more usually at least the aerial is sticking up!
|Here you can see the aerial sticking out, behind MJ's ear. She was standing in the light, but the shadow of the people watching (from a land rover) are clearly visible.|
|MJ was walking away from us, then decided to scratch a tree-trunk. This was nice enough, as she took up a graceful curved, shape, though her head was behind some twigs.|
Then she turned and looked at us, ignoring the barrage of clicks.
