WC2010-African Safari- Female Leopard

She was, quite simply...MAGNIFICENT.

I've left a bit of Pauline in the photo so you can see how close we are and how well she is camouflaged.

Foster and Like taught us that leopards are distinguished by the marks just above the stripes on their noses. See the pattern of spots? Each leopard is marked differently....just like fingerprints.

It was truly awe-inspiring to be so close to one of the most beautiful of God's creatures...what a way to spend an early morning!
