Cape Town - Last year Natasha Bourke, aged 13, went on a family holiday to Singita Ebony Lodge, in the Sabi Sand region.

While fishing with her family she captured this incredible photograph of a leopard taking a leap of faith.

Owing to this photograph she has made it into the final round of the Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition hosted by the Natural History Museum (NHM) in London.

Natasha is entered into the young competition which is for photographers from all over the world who are aged 17 and under. Winners will be notified in May 2014.
