WOW! incredible shots, thanks for posting the follow ups. Isn't kind of rare to get those cat's in the wild, or am I way off? I've been reading about hunting them, and it seems you can spend a week in a blind and still not ever see one.
When we go to Africa we always see lots of cats in the wildlife preserves where no hunting is allowed. I am sure it would be as you described in the hunting areas.
When you mention a week in a blind, you are probably referring to leopards which are very nocturnal. I saw at least one leopard on each trip but they were considered somewhat lucky sightings and certainly not guaranteed.
