“Rare Video: Leopard’s Unusual Mating Behavior Inside Bird’s Nest Captured”

We remember the unusual case of a leopard lying in a hamerkop’s nest, cleaning itself. The yellow-black predator among the yellow-black birds in a huge bird’s nest. We had never seen anything so special. But the fact that the mating act occurred a little later, because the leopard was not alone in the tree, made the situation even more special. One of the rarely seen leopard pairs and then in such an extraordinary place. Amazing what the Maasai Mara has to offer.

Leopard Honeymoon: Waiting patiently for a few hours at our prime photography position in the Kenyan wilderness rewards us with some unique photographs of leopards mating high up in a tree. We couldn’t believe our eyes when, after a couple of hours, the female got into position and invited the male, not once, not twice, but three times. Some lucky people have seen leopards mating on the ground, but watching them perform gracefully in an abandoned Hamerkop bird nest at the top of a tree was an incredible treat.
