Leopard heads off

... then it jumped down, walked right past our vehicle (as if to say, "See? You don't scare me; I choose to go somewhere more peaceful, that's all!") and headed off into the dark.

 

Sure, not the best leopard photos in the world, but seeing one for the first time in the wild was really special. We saw several more on our next safari, in better light but further away.
