It seems with leopards you meet them by chance. You can track tigers, listen to alarm calls & find them, but leopards seem to appear when you least expect it.
We had visited Bandhavgarh National Park in central Indian, renound for it’s tigers. Tiger sightings were few & brief, so we decided to go to a remote beauty spot to see the sun setting. There he was lying by the side of the road. By the time we stopeed he had retreated into the undergrowth, almost invisible

By the time I spotted him, the leopard moved away

he was barely visible

so we reversed back a few 100 yards & waited, hoping he might come back

helooked back briefly through the long grass for a few seconds, before disappearing from view

It's very special to see such animals in their natural environment. I love how he looks back to you in #6 !
