This young female leopard is about to rise from a cozy lay down posture to investigate a movement in the thicket close by, her gaze still fixed to the object that attracted her attention. She was quite undisturbed by our presence and continued to move about at leisure displaying the majesty of it’s species.

Location: Yala National Park, Sri Lanka
