Description: An unknown young male leopard watching us from the crook of a tree

Story from behind the lens: This young leopard spent hours hidden; peering at us through the leaves of this tree. Eventually he decided to climb down, pausing briefly to give us a warning glare before darting away into the bushes. He is a shy male who is not well known in the Mara yet. Though we have shared pictures of this leopard with numerous photographers and guides, no one can name him with certainty.
