Lazy Leopard

Category: Nature


Photo and caption by Guy Nickerson

We spent the day shadowing this leopard as it ate and guarded its kill in the underbrush of an acacia tree. It was overcast all day, but as the sun began to set, the leopard climbed a nearby tree, observed us for about 5 minutes and then closed its layer down to soak up the last bit of warmth.

Location: Botswana, Okavango Delta
