This male (panthera pardus) was totally unfazed by our safari truck in Moremi NP in the Okavango Delta area of Botswana. He posed in a number of different spots until he finally spotted a small band of impala. We watched his entire hunt in spell bound silence, right up to the point that he missed his prey and walked off in a huff.

After being widowed, I needed to find something new to occupy my mind. I chose photography. That turned into an obsession, compounded by my love of the artistic license provided by Photoshop and the many other artful programs that help us explore all the facets of turning a photo into art.
