More flying Leopards at Elephant Plains...!
Another flying leopard on the recent ODP safari at Elephant Plains.

Salayexe (or Salasheya as some members call her...) taking the shortcut from one part of the Marula to another where her kill was stashed.
Although I have seen leopards doing this on a number of occasions it has always been impossible for me to get a good shot of this behaviour.
Either there are just too many branches or leaves in the way or the leopard ends up jumping away from you... or any of a number other factors.
Here I finally got my chance to get her jumping from one part of the tree over a big opening to another, without any branches or other factors obscuring the view.
I know the background is a bit busy but the image does show the behaviour and environment of the leopard really well.
