The longest five minute staring contest

TRAVELLERS usually smile for their holiday snaps...but Gareth Owen looks rather nervous to find himself being stared at by a curious leopard.

The big cat crept up on the 44-year-old Welshman during a safari on the Masai Mara game reserve in Kenya and did not budge for five tense minutes. Leopards are often spotted on safari but rarely venture so close to the tour 4x4s!
"For five minutes the leopard’s head oscillated to and fro, inches from our motionless Welshman"Paul Goldstein
Guide Paul Goldstein, who took the photo, said: “I whispered, ‘this is not usual’, although my fingers were twitching on the ignition as the dappled assassin crouched right next to the back seats.
“For five minutes the leopard’s head oscillated to and fro, inches from our motionless Welshman.”
Gareth did not end up as a leopard’s lunch – it eventually loped off to inspect another vehicle.
