Leopard, Okavango Delta

Photograph by Beverly Joubert

This Month in Photo of the Day: The Power of Photography

A leopard sits in an ancient baobab tree in Botswana's Okavango Delta, a seasonal oasis for wild things above and below the water's surface.

Joubert is one of 11 photographers featured in our "Women of Vision" exhibit. See more pictures from the exhibit and hear from the curators on Proof.

I do agree to Mr.Gregg donley's view,in fact big tree is creating a very lively and vast background to leopard which Mr Beverly Joubert has utilised very effectively.

This is a great picture.  I probably would have zoomed in or centered the subject and ruined the great contrast between the "big" cat and the even bigger tree.  Its wonderful picture.

In this big cat's eyes, I see a flicker of the spirit of my old house cat as a feather moving quickly pulls at her instincts
