This young leopard (Panthera pardus) was brimming with mischief and spunk, prancing around his mother and delighting in ambushing her at every possible opportunity. When she chose to lay down and have a midday nap under the tree, he couldn’t contain himself and vaulted up into the branches. From his perch he could barely contain his fascination with a world swimming with new and fresh attractions begging to be explored.

Although Canadian by birth, I grew up in Africa and from an early age travel became a regular part of my life. As a result I developed an early passion for my two great loves, Africa and aviation. Being fortunate to return to Africa every year with our own safari company “Explorations Africa”, all of my photos of wildlife are taken in their natural and unstaged settings.
