This is a sad edition of Out of Africa. The last post, on elephants, can be found here.

Or just click on the Africa tag to get all the posts.

I am going to show you pictures of Olive. She is a leopard who was the star of a BBC series I never saw. She got used to being a star and was more comfortable around people than most which allowed me to get the great pictures here. Sadly, Olive was apparently killed by her only enemy in the wild, lions, just a few weeks after we met her. I tell you this ahead of time so you don't fall in love too much.

We found her in the bush one morning and got within about 20 feet of her.

Circle of life, and all that crap. But I'm crying as I post this, but I am so glad I got to meet her.
