Description: Olakira stalking in the early light of morning

Story from behind the lens: Finding a leopard in the Mara at golden hour is the best feeling in the world. Our guide moved us to a new position as everyone focused on Olakira and the light as they interacted. We were the only ones who could view Olakira as she prepared to walk through the birds at this precise moment.

It was a beautiful moment watching the light interact with her and birds as she passed by and showed them her power by not even making eye contact with them.

This was one of my favorite moments from this July.
