Caption This #6

The winner of Caption This #6, by popular vote, is Barking In The Dark with the caption “What do you mean you love me? You’re a Giraffe.” Congratulations!
Also see the previous winners at the Caption This Winners Gallery.

The setting: The Grootkolk Wilderness Camp (Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park) at sunset. A leopard comes down to the waterhole to drink. We (the humans) are huddling around the communal campfire a mere 50 metres away, braaing (barbecuing) some meat for our dinner. As the leopard walks away it suddenly stops in its tracks and raises its head to sniff the air . . .

For more photos of this leopard see the post The Camp Cat on my photoblog.

You only get to vote once. Because I’m not sure if enough people will vote, I’m allowing people to pick their top TWO (2) choices. You can (theoretically) vote for yourself, but please only do so if you are convinced yours is the best caption!
