The Enigmatic Couple
A surreal experience spending time at dusk with the Panther and his mate on a close tree with orange skies behind , stuff that dreams are made of.
We had tracked the location of the couple in the morning drive through the loud mating sounds. They mated all morning as close as 20 feet from the lantana wall but would not break cover. Dejected we left the place to come back to the same spot in the evening and the waiting game continued. At the fag end of the drive as we switched on our engines to leave for the gates the Black Panther came out at full tilt snarling out in the open 3 feet from our vehicle and shot up this close tree followed by the female. We were in shock and it literally took us a good 10 seconds to lift our cameras and start shooting. What a moment! Was worth all the wait for those magical few minutes. One of my top wildlife moments.
