One of the greatest days in my life as a wildlife photographer for over 3.5 decades.. when a Tiger went behind a Leopard who was atop a Saal Tree at Kanha Tiger Reserve.. Once in a life time kind of an event for sure..

ISO 1600, f11, 1/500 shutters
Z9, with 500mm FL

The odds against ever seeing that are off the scale, Clement! My heart would have done a somersault! What an amazing sighting - and you have captured the moment superbly.

How fortunate to not only see this interaction, but to be able to document it with both of the cats in the open. Great timing.
