Leopard (Panthera pardus)  It's early morning in Masai Mara. From the evening before we know of a beautiful, strong leopard. But since yesterday afternoon's light was bad, there was no point in taking photos. As we speak, post election mayhem reigns in Kenya and Masai Mara is empty. So no one disturbs the leopard. Already from the day before he has got accustomed to me. We both wait for the sunrise, its seven in the morning. Dawn, and the light is like from a dream. The beast begins to literally pose.
