A profile of Rockfig Jr, the second of three unique leopards we encountered in the Motswari Private Game Reserve in South Africa, during an intsene and life-changing photographic safari in October of 2012.

The background blur is not artificially introduced; it is the optical result of the use of a long focal length at a wide aperture within close proximity to the leopard.
