    Not the greatest shot technically and one where I think my 200-400 f4 would have given me more options (faster shutter with the same iso). But a rare capture on safari.
    Nikon D810 200-500 at 480 400 iso f6.3 1/400

    Love it! Might not be technically perfect; but you got a fantastic moment with the pink flesh caught in the mouth like that and exposed against the drab outer body of the beast the leopard has caught

    Bryan, nice capture. I was in Sabi Sands last August for 10 days and we saw a total of 11 leopards. A couple of them had kills, but mostly they were hanging out on the tops of old abandoned termite mounds avoiding the lions and the hyenas. Where did you take this one?
