Description

The mother leopard has just brought down this wildebeest, which she is now carrying off to her lair, where she and her three cubs will spend the next three days feeding. The image was taken just as the first first rays of dawn spotlighted the rocks and blades of grass (and the wildebeest' white teeth). If you look carefully, you can see two of the leopard's three cubs in the picture. One is in the shadows above the rock towards the right. The other is helping mom. You can his tail sticking up from the rock behind his mother's head. I took the image with a Canon EOS 7D Mark II with Canon EF 100-400 mm f/4.5-5.6 L IS II USM lens. The exposure settings were 1/200 sec. at f/ 5.0, ISO 400, 153 mm focal length.
