Under the Milkyway

Category: Outdoor Scenes


Photo and caption by Hannes Lochner

After killing a springbok, a big male leopard settles down for a nice meal under the Milkyway. The leopards in this area make use of caves in the rocky outcrops to hide their kills, and it is also a safe place to have their cubs, hidden away from all the scavengers.

Location: Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park, South Africa
