Big Cat of the Kruger

It has been a while since a leopard turned up 'round these parts, so here is another tight view of Rockfig Jr female, a stunning leopardess who inhabits the Motswari Private Nature Reserve in the Timbavati region of greater Kruger National Park, Mpumalanga province, South Africa.
