Description: We encountered this leopard walking in the morning light and it appeared oblivious to our presence

Story from behind the lens: We encountered this leopard during our first early morning drive in one of the Mara conservancies. It appeared oblivious to our presence and continued steadfast on its route. I was lucky as there was no distracting background and managed to blur it with an open aperture. We followed it for a bit of time before it vanished into the bushes.
