Bath Time



Tanzania, 2021.

Limited edition print of 6 – On my last day on safari, my friend and guide Steven Ngowi and I headed out alone into the Northern Serengeti. We were searching for big cats. I was hopeful we’d spot one, but wildlife photography has its way of testing your patience. We had been out in the early morning light for an hour when the magic happened, and we came across this beautiful mother leopard. Initially, she was hiding her two cubs from our presence. We approached at a safe distance. Shut our vehicle off. Waited. She relaxed, giving an unforgettable call, and within moments, her babies came running to her. The small family bathed, played, and relaxed together under the rising sun. Photo © copyright by Derek Nielsen
