We shadowed this you Leopard one morning when he eventually stopped in a dry channel allowing for a nice low level perspective.

Steve, what a fine image!  I love the high-key presentation. The fact that the light parts the leopard's coat are similar in tone to the light surroundings makes the image for me.  What a treat to view full size!  :)

Beautifully done Steve, I love the way you've popped this handsome boy from the parched surrounds and his disinterest in your presence just adds to the feeling of a peep into his private world. Superb!
