    Old Green Eyes – A true survivor

    April 2nd, 2020

    When we started our Planet Okavango Project, there was a leopard in the area we were based called “Green Eyes” with the most incredible coloured eyes I have ever seen. The better the light, the better colour the eyes became for photography. End of last year a good 3 years since I photographed her last, I asked one of the guides from a nearby lodge when was the last time he saw her? Apparently she was killed, (a rumour), by lions, as well as her cub. He saw how the lions tore her leg off etc. Nobody saw her for months, so everybody assumed she was dead. To our surprise 6 months later we bumped into a leopard lying under a bush with the last rays of afternoon sunlight on her face licking her back paw. She was licking a “stumpy.” Clearly she lost a limb, but here was “Green Eyes”, very much alive. Survived a lion attack, and looking in good condition, with only 3 legs. Nature is a wonderful thing! A true survivor!

    Midnight’s Feast

    March 18th, 2020

    After a huge fight between 2 hippo bulls the older male died because of all his wounds and blood-loss. The carcass drifted for a few days and after the
    crocodiles had their fare share, the smell attracted hyenas and they walked in carefully to drag the remains out. After feasting for a while 2 lions appear on the other side of the river. To avoid getting eaten by crocodiles they walked downriver to cross the river where it was more narrow. The hyenas ran away and the lions feasted on the remains the whole night long until early morning. Now and then the hippo bull responsible for the other’s demise walked out of the water for some strange reason, to chase the lions off. I tried to capture the whole seen, two lions feasting, hippo and the river in the background, including the milkyway that stretched across the skyline. #singleframe
