    Anything is possible if you really want it... and here is proof.

    Hal Brindley an American Photographer took these pictures in the Kruger National park in South Africa. Talk about right place right time.

    Not only is it extremely rare to spot or see a leopard period (day or night) its even more rare to see them make a kill.

    Then to see this kind of kill is something that has never been seen before by rangers who spend more hours out there than anyone else.


    See the pics at http://www.halbrindley.com/photos/leopard-seq/01.html


    To me these pictures demonstrate the power of motivation. Anything is possible if you really want it because this Leopard really had to want this one.


    Enjoy this is wild africa at its finest. So beware of those cats...
    cheers

    That's an excellent example of natural process. Great photo sequence.

    That was one determined Leopard.
    If you don't take pride in your work, life get's pretty boring.

    Rule of thumb is if you donít know what tool to buy next, then you probably donít need it yet.

    I understand that croc tastes like Chicken

    Has to be the other way around, Don. Chicken tastes like croc. Crocs have been around a lot longer!!!
