Leaping leopards, Batman!

From Tony Park Tue Dec 11 2012, 00:51:00

As you blog followers may have guessed I have been favouring Facebook over the blog lately, but felt that I must also share the following video with y'all here (I just shared it on FB).

I'm not, as a rule, given to sharing stuff other people have posted, but this movie of a leopard in South Africa (the setting is not specified, but it looks like the Sabi Sand Game Reserve to me) by Martha van Rensburg is just breathtaking.

When you watch the video, look for the leopard lying in wait on the left hand side of the road. It is facing towards the right hand side of the road, from whence a herd of spooked impala comes charging.

Hit the old freeze-frame a few times and you'll get some spectacular shots of the leaping, somersaulting leopard.
