Image and text by @beverlyjoubert. Sea-green eyes stare out at us from an Acacia branch. This young leopard hasn’t seen much conflict in his life. The ears are intact and the nose remains unscarred. Leopards are astounding creatures- with their remarkable stealth they are still able to live undetected (at low numbers) in major cities. Due to their secrecy it’s not easy to determine their populations but we know that they are following the same downward trajectory as all big cats, as habitats change and prey disappears. Despite the difficulty in determining their populations, they are targeted by trophy hunters and poachers alike; their exquisite skins still desirable in some cultures. In this corner of the Okavango all hunting has been stopped for over a decade, poaching has been kept to an absolute minimum and we have been rewarded with frequent sights like these, of relaxed cats who are willing to share their space. Over their lifetimes big cats like these will bring in millions of dollars through photographic tourism, ensuring that their environment and ecosystem can be maintained in a world where human populations keep expanding and taking. #leopard #bigcats #thisismytrophy

“Being a single parent, it is not easy to share the qualities of both father and mother at the same time,” writes #YourShotPhotographer Navin Vatsa. “When I lost my wife my wife in an accident eight years ago, it was very difficult and painful to handle [my son’s] innocence. But gradually with time, the understanding between us [has] become a guiding force to me for the years ahead…”

“Identity is among the most ambiguous subject matters a person can explore. Whether it’s looking at an individual’s relationship with him/herself or examining identity in the context of a larger group or culture, the challenge is to make images that thoughtfully convey something that isn’t necessarily obvious at first glance,” writes Documentary photographer Kholood Eid (@kholoodeid). “We’re asking you, the Your Shot community to explore what makes up your identity, how do you see yourself through a photograph.”
