Leopard

I spent the entire month of May, 1992 in the Okavango Delta of the Kalahari in Botswana on a hunting safari.  I was second gun on a hunt that included Cape Buffalo,  Lion, Leopard, Kudu, Lechwe,  Sitatunga, Duiker,  Sable, Impala, among others.  I shot video on that trip, but was not a photographer as I am today.  It may be my life’s biggest regret, and someday I will go back, leaving my rifle behind and carrying my camera.  This photo represents my wistful desire to return to the Dark Continent and was taken at the Milwaukee County Zoo in Milwaukee, WI.  fortunately, it was a slow day and I had the animal all to myself.  Hence, his eyes locked on me the whole time and I captured an almost studio portrait effect.
