should have been a ribbon winner Lesley. I thought this moght have been one of yours actually. That you got to track leaopards for a week makes me insanely jealous. I was in Kenya and saw three in one day, one of which stalked prey about 200 metres away, but backed off when a bird started skwaking. The detail and light in this really amazes me, and the exposure is certainly perfect. One of my favourites and you got a 10 from me.
