Leopards And Taita Hills
Hidden among the shadows of large boulders and the hypnotic swaying of grass in the breeze, a leopard peacefully rests atop of a hill enjoying the uninterrupted views of the savanna below. In this photograph i try to let the hill's natural vegetation and terrain fill most of the frame as my intention of this image was to highlight the leopards rich and rugged terrain.
Its light colored coat covered in darkened rosettes helps it to blend almost perfectly into its natural landscape. Were it not for our experience and knowledge of almost every nook and cranny of this particular hill in the Taita Hills Wildlife Sanctuary, it would have surely gone unnoticed.
