Final Leap by WimvandenHeever

This years WPY image.
What a privileged it was to go back for the awards in London.

I had followed this female Leopard for days trying desperately to hunt. She was most unusual using the vast open plains in Etosha to hunt and stalk her prey. What was even more amazing was how short the grass was that she was hunting in. This morning after missing her first hunt due to a change in wind direction I watcher the leopard disappear in the short grass with an approaching big male Springbok ram. I could not believe my eyes when she launched herself only just managing to catch the Springbok in what can only be described as an amazing feat of agility and strength.

Leap of Youth by morkelerasmus

There are few spectacles in nature that compare to the drama of the annual Great Migration between the Serengeti and Maasai Mara…I am just back from hosting a photo safari to our authentic camp on the banks of the Mara river – and our guests had several EPIC crossings very close to camp…

Prints can be ordered directly by mailing PRINTS@MORKELERASMUS.COM
