Artist's Description

Yambilu Jordaan male, Djuma Private Reserve, Sabi Sands, South Africa

You also need not worry, he does not have a bad eye, he really does seem to be winking ! This leopard is kind of unique for a leopard on Sabi Sands. Many are habituated to be around vehicles and most of the lodges allow only a maximum of 2-3 vehicles to be around a leopard at one time. However this guy has his own rules about vehicle. He will only allow one vehicle near him at a time and he is very relaxed. Shortly After I took this shot another vehicle stopped nearby. The leopard calmly stood up and walked into thick bush.
