This Thanda Leopard was enjoying the warming afternoon sun on a cool winter day. Leopards are very shy cats which usually do not like to be seen during the day. But this beautiful male made an exception to this rule to collect the last afternoon sun-rays before moving off into the thick bush.

What a sighting!
