2 Year Old Leopard Takes Down Water Buck – Rudi Hulshof

Sigma SA has the pleasure of working with some of South Africa’s top wildlife photographers. The brand is proud to support photographic artists that brave the harsh environments and long hours so that we all can enjoy the majesty of the Wild. It takes great amount of dedication, skill and, not to mention, a little smile from Lady Luck to get that perfect shot. We just have to commend our brand ambassadors every time they manage to do just that!

The following incredible sequence of photos documents a 2.5 year old leopard taking down a much larger Water Buck. This serendipitous series of events was captured by the talented Sigma ambassador, Rudi Hulshof from Rudi Hulshof’s Classic Africa, at Royal Malewane. He used the Sigma Global Vision 120-300mm F2.8 DG OS HSM | SPORTS lens with the Sigma Global Vision 1.4x TELE CONVERTER TC1401.

In Rudi’s own words: “…the luck of seeing a 2 and a half year old leopard killing prey as big as this Waterbuck is amazing.
