Leopard in Tall Grass, Namibia

Out on our early morning drive in the Ongrava Reserve near Etosha National Park, Namibia, we spotted a shape by the side of the road under a tree. Our guide thought it was a lion but as we approached, the cat lifted its head and it was clearly a leopard! It crossed the road and disappeared into the tall grasses but as we drove by, we spotted it staring at us for a few seconds before turning on its heels and disappearing. I only had time to get two shots!
