A leopard in a tree can be hard to see, even when the guide and your wife is trying to help you find what they see - especially if you make the mistake of trying to find it by using your zoomed in camera's viewfinder [ the lesson I learned was to use a spotting scope or binoculars first ]

in the field, I saw the head like structure on the tree on the right but did not make out the leopard on the left

[ and in fact, it wasn't until today when I was playing with the photos in pp, that I finally saw the leopard, the last two photos show what I was trying to deal with in PP and the initial image I got after first used pp ]

first leopard we saw in the Serengeti National Park in Tanzania

Thank you very much

I got lucky, right place, right time

I am putting various photos from the experience in various threads in the forums

too many to put in just one. they range from the birds to flowers to pollinators in action

I was trying out my Tamron 70 - 300 mm macro zoom LD, SMC Pentax-D FA 100mm F2.8 Macro and Smc Pentax-DA L 50-200mm F4-5.6 ED WR

The Bandicoots in the north seem much bigger.

That really captures a great moment. How to clear out something that's become stuck in your throat.
