The afternoon turned out to be much better in terms of sightings, if not photo opportunities. We saw a leopard in a tree, maybe 70 yards away from the trail. The second sighting was much more exciting, being a female leopard and her two cubs. Once again, unruly safari jeeps turned a front row seat to the leopard family crossing the trail into a pristine view of the rears of a dozen safari jeeps. Using the reach of the 400mm+2x TC, I managed to get some very average images between some vehicles. Having taken the moral high road of not trying to race towards the leopards to get the best shots, we returned empty handed yet again.
