After some fantastic wildlife spotting and photography, including pursuit of a leopardess on a stalk some thirty minutes earlier, we returned to Big Nigrescens where I shot this image and a few others in the pitch blackness of a warm African night.
Sometimes it is good to go back through older images with fresh eyes and see if there is anything which was captured and forgotten, but which has potential to be a great image.
The other day I went back through my shots of Rockfig Jr, a magnificent female leopard we encountered in the Timbavati region of greater Kruger National Park during our trip to South Africa in October of 2012.
While I have a similar profile of Rockfig Jr, I thought this second version was worth publishing:
Seeing images like this and others from my collection, as well as remembering what we were doing and the magical sensory overload we experienced on that trip a year ago, makes me want to go back there and experience it again.
We are still keen on heading back to Africa in 2014 and have some planning to do, so perhaps at this time next year, I will be writing about what we are doing in Africa rather than what we did a year ago.
