Description: A young leopard resting at dusk appears to smell the flowers

Story from behind the lens: We found this young male Leopard the end of the day, resting in the grass, with his mother nearby. Such a beautiful and strong animal, and at one point, he appeared to smell the flowers... this small tender act drew me to him even more.
