Night visitor

Artist's Description

Being both a nocturnal and primarily arboreal carnivore, the Large-spotted Genet, or alternately Cape Genet (Genetta tigrina), is a treat to see up close and personal. Having just enjoyed the fading light of a glorious sunset, and lingering on the veranda to absorb the peaceful onset of another African night in the bush, it was such a treat to have this beautiful female drop down into view. She was evidently hoping for some scraps from the table and so lingered on the fringes of the faint circle of light cast by the porch light into the growing darkness. She had obviously become quite used to human presence, as at one point she approached to within about 2 meters, looking and hoping for any morsel that might make her noctornal foragings a little easier.
