“That’s not lipstick,” Nancy said. This beautiful leopard at Londolozi, in the Sabi Sands area of South Africa, looks up from from her mid-morning meal, a steenbok. She has dragged the small antelope up a tree, where she can’t be reached by lions or hyenas that would love to steal her catch and perhaps kill her. Lions would not be interested in eating her, but they would like her out of the way because she presents competition for food. She will feed on the steenbok off and on for a full day before moving on. By then, there will be very, very little left of the steenbok, which can be glimpsed behind the branches and leaves on the right side of the image.
