Protective Leopard Mom

Species: Panthera pardus pardus/African Leopard | Location: Serengeti National Park, Tanzania

This leopard mom was guiding her cubs through the grassy Serengeti plains as vehicles lined the rutted dirt road to watch and get their pictures. Being a good mom, she stayed close to her cub keeping him from straying too close to the road.

About The Photographer

Cropped barbara hayton 1

I've been a passionate nature photographer for about 15 years and being out with wildlife in their natural habitat is my absolute favorite. I travel as much as I can to see the many different, wonderful species and my recent trip to Tanzania was the highlight of my life…so far.
