Artist's Description

This old guy lived to the ripe old age of 20 or so. He had only one good eye. He was the dominant leopard in the Lion Sands area for many years. He is no longer with us, but he leaves a great legacy.

Also, this shot was taken from a vehicle that had no windows and NO roof. I was about 3 meters (10 feet) directly below him. There was nothing that could stop him, other than his lack of desire, to jump into the vehicle. He was quite the mellow cat!
