On one particular monitoring session, the wildlife volunteers and I were heading out to find the wild dog pack, when we came across this magnificent male leopard just off the main road. It was very exciting, as leopards are largely nocturnal and tend to be very skittish. This one, however, stuck around for a few moments letting us take in all his beauty and get a few photos. It’s always a special moment when you get to spend time with these creatures.
