I caught this shot in Serengeti National Park at the end of an afternoon game drive. We spotted this leopard up in a tree with his prey but were too far away to get a decent shot. Our guide offered to go off-road for a better vantage point, and as we drove towards the tree the leopard immediately jumped up and began to descend, feeling threatened by our approach. This shot was taken just as the leopard paused and finally leaped down onto the ground in front of our jeep.
