Just like Mom - Leopard with cub
Photographer: Sylvia J. Zarco
Location: Selinda Reserve, Botswana Africa
After getting acclimated to the presence of safari vehicles, a mother leopard relaxes and plays with her cub. As Mom rests on a fallen tree, a lull in her cub's bursts of uncontrollable energy offers a moment for the pair to sit quietly and enjoy the beautiful morning together.
