The big cat was orginally scoping out the sandgrouse at a nearby watering hole before they took flight, but this kitty didn't let a little height stop it. Instead, it got on its hind legs and went for it with a giant leap.
This cat is a wild leopard and not a pet, sadiemae1214. This is one of the ways wild cats hunt. If you collared and belled it, it would die of starvation because cats are obligate carnivores. They must eat meat to live.

mwgab, sorry but you need to put a bell on that cats collar. Well fed house cats hunt for sportand fun, not to eat and survive. That aside, those were amazing pictures.
We had a little black shorthair cat that would lay on her side on the lawn, baiting bluejays and mockingbirds to dive bomb her. When they got into striking range, she'd leap from her prone position and snag them as they flew down on her.
