Yes I know, and I thought exactly the same thing when I watched the Leopard cub appear from the tall grass and climb the branch to its mother. Wow that is amazing and fascinating and so damn cute! It was one of those moments that make being on the road a wondrous gift. But here’s the rub, there is always a mountain of work behind capturing those rare frames that people love to espouse as ‘moments’.
For example, I did not have the time nor budget to be spending as long as I would have liked on this assignment in the Serengeti. I’d already been there twice last year but each time to different regions, which can be both a blessing and a curse. And on this expedition I’d passed, and photographed the female leopard several times without realizing there was even a cub in the area.
As a species Leopard are notoriously difficult to find and the fact this individual was even in the same tree on repeated occasions was surprising. People passing by and casually stopping to ‘see a leopard’ had no idea how fortunate they were and I was disheartened at how complacent they were even when I tried to get them excited about the rare sighting. But I’d spent decades in Africa with only a handful of Leopard encounters and so was happy to indulge my inner desire for a high five!
So much so that as I raced, literally, for my plane out of the National Park I was determined to stop one more time when I saw her silhouette on the branch above the plain. And then the cub appeared from the grass below and everything made sense! But when the young cat made it’s way up the trunk and out on the limb to its mother I could feel that excitement build fuelled by creative potential, and the rest as they say is history!
This print, along with many others, is available to purchase at Jason Edwards website.
