This is a record shot of my first sighting of Leopard. The sighting did not last for more than few seconds. After one hard hide and seek game with this leopard at least i could get a glimpse of him. There were 2 more jeeps with us trying to get a glimpse of him. Listening to the alarm calls of a peacock, and few deer from one direction and some movement in bushes we gathered at one opening of the bush waiting eagerly when the leopard will cross path..unexpectedly the leopard crossed the path from the opposite side of the bush while we were not even aware and had our backs against him. He just came and disappeared into another bush with speed.While he was disappearing in the bushes i took this shot
I know this image considering the photography attitude is not a perfect one as we see different leopard perfect breathtaking images but this remains special for me being the first Leopard sighting in wild. There is no head turn no eye contact..only my thrill and eagerness just to see him and capture him in my camera resulting in this image. Hope to see many more in wild.
