It was early winter morning. Spotted Deer ( Chitals ) were giving alarm calls as they sensed some danger. We were looking around and the Big Cat appeared and disappeared in the forest swiftly.

This excellent image just shows how well their markings camouflage them in the forest. The poor deer must be on constant alert in case they are near! Well spotted and taken Shreyas!

Wonderful use of habitat,
with a cracking pose on this Leopard, enhances even further, well done Shreyas.
