The awe-inspiring pictures were taken by Russian wildlife photographer, Sergey Gorshkov on a visit to Londolozi Private Game Reserve, South Africa.

‘My camera is my connecting link between me and wildlife,’ he said.

‘Through the lens of the camera I can see things, take pictures and try to reproduce the beauty of wild nature, a piece of what I have seen and how I felt being there.’

 Field guide Warrick Davey, 29, took the horrifying photos while he was taking a group of guests on a safari tour

He added: ‘I want to photograph wildlife as it is and how it should remain for our children

Leopards are the smallest of the big cats and are opportunistic predators.

They usually choose to eat gazelle, deer and wildebeest, but are known to kill and eat other leopards to mark out their territory and warn off competition for food.

Leopards are solitary animals who are under constant threat from humans who hunt them for fur.
