A Pilgrim’s Postcards – 5

Masai Mara , Kenya .

The leopard walked more than a milethrough the open grasslands to reach this tree .

20-30 vehicles of the tourists, steadily increasing in numbers , as the news about the predator was spreading fast , followed her all the way .

She walked confidently, ignoring all the noise around her.She obviously knew what she had to do.

She approached the tree,stood there for a moment and looked up to make sure that the carcass of a gazelle was still up there among the branches.

Then, all of a sudden,she leaped onto the tree and climbed up quickly to the branch where the carcass was kept,reaching there within a fraction of a second !
