Mating leopards

Category: Nature


Photo and caption by Kurt Jay Bertels

I was lucky enough to find a pair of mating leopards, but not lucky enough to get the light. Instead of pushing my ISO through the roof, I tried an abstract image instead, and slowed down the shutter speed to capture the movement of the male leopard dismounting. The soft light of the late afternoon came to the fore, and coloured the image perfectly.

Location: Greater Kruger Park, South Africa
