Description: A beautiful Leopard gazes into my lens

Story from behind the lens: A Leopard shields herself from the relentless glare of the African sun. We visited this beautiful cat on three separate occasions throughout the day. We arrived to about 10-15 vehicle huddled around one side of a tree. With a small verge on one side, it was the only side to utilise. One land cruiser traveled from over 100km to see this beautiful girl. On our last visit of the day, as the sun began to set, she’d turned into beautiful light and stared straight into my lens, a moment that I will cherish
