Description: Post mating ritual, a male leopard gets spurned away by the female in a rather contemptuous manner.

Story from behind the lens: This mating couple had been active for quite a while, and post every mating session, the male would be spurned away by the female, this particular time, in quite a contemptuous manner.

This was shot from as low an angle as was possible, so as to give the sense of closeness to the subject.
