Leopard Cubs

During a drive one morning in Botswana’s Okavango Delta, Richard Coke followed a leopardess for about ten minutes. “I knew this particular female very well. She had two cubs and there was a good chance she would lead me to them,” the South Africa resident writes. He soon spotted her cubs in the fork of an ebony tree. “As their mother left the area, their eyes were fixed on her until she disappeared from sight,” Coke writes. He used a Nikon D300 and a 200-400mm lens.
