The Leopard – Beautiful but Shy

The Leopard is my favourite

To me, wildlife photographer Klaus Tiedge, the the leopard is the most difficult animal to capture; but it is also the most beautiful cat in the African wild. the leopard is the most beautiful animal but I am often frustrated by its shy nature. Your only real chance to get a great leopard photo is with an extreme amount of patience. Sometime you follow a leopard for days only seeing an ear or a tail sticking out of the bush. Then you park off and wait. Your window of opportunity for a great photo will suddenly open when the leopard moves. You often have only 2-3 minutes and then its over.

The story behind: Dignity

… while driving through the bushveld of dry and golden shimmering grass, I smelled the same smell of hay that I remember so well from my childhood. It felt good and wonderful to be out there.
Suddenly my driver stops, interrupting my wondering thoughts. But I cannot see anything. Then, right next to our car, I couldn’t believe my eyes…

you just have to be patient
