Lucky for us, this female leopard did what everybody expects leopards to do, climbing up a tree and staying there for a while.

Leopards are said to be very abundant in this area, but being solitary, they are the most elusive of the big cats. Like cheetahs, they try to avoid run-ins with lions, because lions will go out of their way to kill any leopards and cheetahs they encounter in their neighborhood.

Ten minutes earlier, we saw these two lions Feline ecstasy by NB-Photo, but I guess they were not interested in hunting down leopards.
Two years ago, when we visited the same area of the Okavango Delta, we did not see a single leopard. This time, we lucked out, and we could admire this adventurous young female for over an hour.

This young female leopard tried to catch a squirrel hiding in the tree. Unsuccessfully.

Random Notes

4 June, 2012:
It's been one year ago today that I submitted my first photograph. I am thoroughly enjoying my activities here, and I am particularly glad about discovering great artwork. Although I don't have the time anymore to respond to each and every favorite, I am very grateful to all of you, and I'm trying to at least reply to all your comments.

28 September, 2012:

20,000+ favorites since I posted my first photograph back in June of 2011! A good reason to be happy and to celebrate. I would like to thank all of my watchers and friends here on dA for their continued interest and support.

15 January, 2013:

Now here's a mystery: I have a photo in my gallery that is entitled "Two Jaguars in Love" Two jaguars in love by NB-Photo that, as of yesterday, had accumulated 227 favorites and had been downloaded 78 times. Today I got notified that, after a seemingly long time, this photo has attracted another favorite, so the count went up to 228. However, at the same time the download count increased to 203!!! Assuming that dA's counting procedures work properly, that suggests that 125 people downloaded my photograph, but only 1 (one) of them picked this as a favorite. Isn't that odd???
I would completely understand that blatant discrepancy if this was some kind of (semi-)pornographic shot, because in that case, who would want to admit to the fact that they picked this as a favorite (for everyone else out there to verify). But hey, this is just wildlife photography. Maybe someone can enlighten me??!!

Excuse me but I have just been excluded from the group for daring to make a criticism,
I can not even answer, I'm finding this fascist attitude.
NB-Photo Featured By Owner Feb 19, 2018  Hobbyist Photographer
I'm sorry to hear that. It is true that I also voted NO on one of your recent pictures. But I have nothing whatsoever against members who dare to speak up and criticize our decision, as long as it's respectful.
But let me ask you this:
Why post this comment on my profile?
Do you know for a fact that it was me who blocked you? It wasn't!
Don't you think the term fascism should be reserved for something far more serious?
In the meantime let me see what I can do to reinstate you.
Mavricot Featured By Owner Feb 20, 2018  Hobbyist Digital Artist
No, i'm blocked on :

That's why I'm talking to you.
Indeed, I got a little carried away, frustrated at not being able to answer.
Do not reinstate me, I wanted to inform you of bad practices on the part of one of your members.
