Description: Leopard walking out of the woods

Story from behind the lens: This Leopard was impressive, and even though he was well hidden in the brush, he chose to walk out. His stroll was a regal, powerful, slow walk. He was not intimidated by the safari trucks surrounding him with people. I felt quite bad for him, as some of the trucks are very aggressive! But to see his self-possession and strong presence felt reassuring.
