Leopard Kill

I was fortunate to be in the right place at the right time when this Leopard took down an Impala, not more than 5m in front of us.

I know animal kills are not everyone's cup of tea but please refrain from making spurious comments. This is nature in Africa, untouched, untamed.

The kill was over quickly and this leopard stashed the Impala and went off to fetch her cub. The circle of life...

Oh wow, you're so lucky to see a kill! I was over in that area this summer and managed to glimpse a male at night, but being this close must've been amazing.
