We were birding when we suddenly saw movement across the bank of a dam, this leopard appeared & walked towards the road behind us. We re-positioned ourselves & waited for her to cross. As she did, she never stopped, but I managed this one frame in particular that i loved. The eye contact, the paw up, the soft light & sheer beauty of this animal made a lovely portrait.
