Predator brothers acrobatically fight one another in Kenyan nature reserve

Two leopards were caught on camera fooling around and play fighting in a Kenyan nature reserve.

The two brothers can be seen messing around in some of the shots, including the dramatic moment when one jumped onto the other.

US photographer Trish Hennessy, 61, captured the photos on her first day of safari at the Samburu National Reserve in June.

The amazing images show one leopard in the air and about to pounce on the tail of his brother.

They continue to scrap on top of the rock when one jumps on top of the other.

The duo were initially camped in a bush but came out and climbed on top of some rocks where they put on the show for the photographer.

Ms Hennessy said: ‘When I took the pictures of the leopards, I cried with delight. It was a gift.

‘I think the leopards dancing on the rock are my favourite captures because it happened so fast.

‘I was taking the picture I remember feeling astonished that I was seeing this. This was my first day of safari.’

It all happened so quickly that Ms Hennessy didn’t know whether she had the correct camera settings and prayed the images were in focus.
