Description: Ndoto (leopard) coming down tree

Story from behind the lens: My guide had heard that Ndoto was high in this tree so we headed there quickly to see her. Leopards can notoriously decide not to descend until your ISO is off the scale but this was a great tree and I was unusually confident she would come down this particular side so we positioned ourselves to wait and hope. The sky took on a beautiful azure blue and we were delighted she eventually descended with balletic grace.
