Emerald Eyes

A female leopard was tucked into the fork of a large tree when we spotted her. She was very shy and remained partially hidden for over an hour. When she revealed herself I was overcome by how beautiful she was and quickly took a series of images. I used a bean bag on the jeep window for stabilization while waiting for the magic moment for the leopard to reveal herself.
