He did, indeed! We had an entire safari vehicle to ourselves so we could 
just sit and wait and watch as long as we needed to.

This was shot late in the day (hence the pink clouds). Our stay-time on site 
was limited because sunset was looming, we were some distance from our camp, 
and being out on the Serengeti after dark is not well thought of by the 
rangers. We were the only ones there, as I recall, most others had even 
further to drive than we did.

The following day we drove by the same tree. There was no sign of leopard, 
carcass of antelope, nada. All gone.

Getting the sky right took work because it was washed out. I had also shot 
some video of the same scene with the same camera and that had the right sky 
color so I had to mask out the tree and manipulate the sky to have it match 

We had a fabulous week on safari.
