This leopard was surprised by a group of lionesses just after having killed an impala. She fled, climbing to the closest tall tree in the neighbourhood, and reaching the top of it, with thin branches, barely able to resist her weight.
She was then waiting, with resignation, for lionesses to leave the area. Position was probably the most uncomfortable that I've never seen for a leopard.
