Satiated

On night a wildlife bush safari we came upon this leopard who we had seen earlier in the day with a large impala. The impala had been a fresh kill and up in a tree. The leopard had started it's meal but was tired from the chase and food. Later that evening we went back to the tree where the food had been stored and found our cheetah. We followed her to the watering hole and watched while she drank post dinner meal and then retired to the cool mud.
