I have been shooting the great white sharks of South Africa for a decade now but this was my first safari at Kruger national park. I was on a drive at Mala Mala Game reserve and we happened upon two leopards mating. This was the immediate aftermath, as the female kicked the male off of her. Sunset was coming on strong so I had to ramp up the ISO to 2000. Got a strong series of photos, but this one was my favorite.
