Leopard camouflaged in tree in Botswana
This was the first leopard that we spotted as we began our safari in Botswana. When first we picked him out from the branches of the tree, he was sleeping. As we watched, he woke and took stock of his surroundings, all the while remaining motionless. We were amazed at the beauty of the leopard and of how he was in harmony with the environment.
