We came upon this fine male leopard whilst on a night drive one hot November evening in Zambia's South Luangwa National Park,
he was teamed up with a female and they were on a mating mission.
No harsh flash was used as I made use of the D700's fine high ISO abilities by reducing the exp comp down -2.7 @ ISO1600,
giving me a suitable shutter speed of 1/100s @ f/2.8, the leopard was lit by a hand held spot light from our vehicle.
I deliberately left room on the right for his virtual tail.
Granting me this majestic night time pose.
