Description: A leopard yawns as she wakes up from a nap to begin her evening of exploration

Story from behind the lens: We set out on the last evening of our safari with the goal of finding a leopard, and so headed of to a rocky area of Naboisho Conservancy. The area certainly looked promising, and before long we came across a dozing female leopard. We settled in to wait, but fortunately not long after she sat up and began to prepare for her evening. As with most large cats, she began to yawn before heading off directly past our car.
