Description: Just caught this beautiful leopard as its retracting its tongue after licking itself

Story from behind the lens: We headed out for the evening drive after a downpour and it was wet everywhere. We found this beautiful leopard who is apparently called 'butterfly'. He was relaxed and we stayed with him for about 30mins. He then got up and started preening himself and I managed to get this shot as he was retracting his tongue.
