Prince of Leopards

Species: Leopard | Location: Maasai Mara Preserve, Kenya

Close-up photo of a male leopard at the end of our safari day. We had been hoping to see one for days. I was blessed to finally see this magnificent creature on a trip to East Africa (Maasai Mara National Reserve) in 2013. He was laying at the base of a tree and seemed totally at ease with our presence. I was able to get many close-up shots of him. I used my Panasonic Lumix DC FZ-70 with a 60x optical zoom in the late afternoon.

About The Photographer

Cropped me in my fav shirt

I love to travel and take photos of wildlife. My first camera was a small digital snap and shoot Nikon, but I now prefer the Panasonic Lumix DC-Series. My background includes graphic design, photography, illustration and wildlife art.
