The photographer: Steven Raffin of Granite Bay

Behind the lens: My wife and I have visited East Africa and South Africa four times. The 2011 trip was the most spectacular. In particular, a stay at the Royal Malewane, Hoedspruit, South Africa (near Kruger Park) provided spectacular wildlife viewing. This young male leopard is about 18 months old at the time of the photo and was accompanied by his mother. We watched the two of them for about an hour by an algae-covered pond.
