Hi all…welcome back to the start of a new week. I hope the weekend was a good break for all of you. I really don’t intentionally try to have themes for the week of pictures but this week seems to have one anyway. This first photograph is of a leopard (love them) stalking its prey. As you keep viewing my blog through the week, you will see a few more stalking cats photos so keep coming back to look. I like pictures like this one because it demonstrates how incredibly well these animals are adapted to their environments. This leopard is really well camouflaged which is obviously to make hunting a little easier for them. They are also astonishingly good at stalking. The way they move so slowly, low to the ground and silently is impressive, all without taking their eyes off their prey. Their coat matches the colour of the Kalahari ground/sand and their spots look like the little shadows cast by the shrubs and rocks. All I can say is good luck to any animal that is the unfortunate target of one of these great cats.
Take a look and let me know what you think.
Cheers til tomorrow
