A female Leopard ( Panthera pardus ) named " Rock Fig jr. " walking passed our game drive vehicle in the Motswari Private Game Reserve during a private photo safari I conducted recently. This wildlife paradise is part of the Timbavati Nature Reserve and one of the best areas in Africa to photograph these elusive cats. Motswari is situated on the Western border of Kruger NP in South Africa.

I have posted a High Key version of this image before and thought that it would be good to show a color version. This has also been processed to darken the background as it was very busy and distracting. The focus here must be on the stunning pose and beauty of this leopard. Hope you like this " Fine Art " image.
