At first I had to search a bit for the subject. However, that said these are wild Snow Leopards, so any image of them is wonderful. On further reflection, I like the depiction of these elusive creatures in their environment, showing how hard it is to find them in real life.

Super camouflage. Like the placement and framing showing them in their habitat

What a privilege to see these magnificent and vulnerable animals in their natural habitat, and I like your use of the wider view to show the harsh environment in which they have to survive. Very nicely done, Arindam!

After having seen an ad on TV recently showing how they blend into the habitat, I knew they would be nicely hidden in the scene. They are placed perfectly in the frame and are not hard to spot when you know they are there. If you just squint, they blend in totally.

Edit: here’s a link to the ad I mentioned:

Nice shot. Brings out the environment they live in - the Ghost of Himalayas. Lovely animals to observe in the wild...

A compelling shot and a wonderful opportunity to see them in the wild. Excellent habitat-one wonders how they survive.
