Leopard and her two adorable cubs. For much of time in the Maasai Mara, Kenya we had focussed our efforts on this female Leopard. We knew she had two cubs: one male, one female. We wanted to see her with both cubs and this happened just once. She first greeted the female cub and there followed some lovely interplay between mother and cub. Then the male cub put in a brief appearance before disappearing into the bushes. As the female cub left he re-emerged again for a brief period. He was well known to be very skittish. Throughout this time the guinea fowl were alarm calling – what a racket! A truly wonderful encounter.
