Description: Leopard on the prowl in the night

Story from behind the lens: We heard late into our evening drive that a leopard was sighted prowling in the open. By the time we reached the location it was dark. We were however lucky to see the fast moving animal very briefly when a vehicle nearby used the red light sparingly and intermittently for a few seconds at a time. I realised I had a very brief window to take my shot quickly with low light settings. Fortunately it worked out. The leopard was approaching us directly before moving behind our vehicle into the dark.
