Description: A beautiful leopardess awakens from her slumber just as dusk begins to fall.

Story from behind the lens: The elusive leopard is the highlight of any safari and we heard of one some distance away from camp. We set off, but on arrival she was sleeping behind some grass. Light was fading and time running out before we had to head back. Just then she sat up, yawned and disappeared. A few seconds encounter, but that was enough for me!
