Cat's View (2015)

Typically leopards and trees go together for a number of sound reasons such as escaping other predators, like lions and hyenas, and of course for hauling up a kill that can be eaten in comfort or stored for a meal later. Trees also make excellent vantage points for surprising potential prey or surveying their surroundings, hence the title, 'Cat's View'. This particular cat had pulled its kill up into the branches of an old, dead lead-wood tree and at this point was checking around for any possible threat and, of course, hoping for a stress-free meal. I chose not to place the bloodied kill hanging from the branches nearby but wanted to recreate the intensity of the moment and the agility of this phenomenal predator.
