    It seems your Leopard luck continues Shymalaji. I hope you have many more such amazing sightings . I read the title and was reminded of Corbett's story about the 'The Temple Tiger'. Does this male frequents any temple there? Loved the pose. Thanks for sharing.

    Eye! Love the eyes. Don't know why I like leopard eyes more. Great to see this leopard on the prowl. The editing has changed the colour temperature and it doesn't show like early morning. Thanks for sharing.

    Cheers,

    According to the naturalists there are two temple males, one old and another young .Both have been known to frequent the ruins of an old Vishnu temple. In fact I had earlier shared a photograph of a mating pair of leopards on the top of this particular temple .Actually on this particular trip I was lucky to to photograph both of them one in the morning and another in the evening .I am confused though as to which is old and which is the younger one .

    The early morning light gave a very dull appearance to the leopards coat .In order to give warmth to its coat I think I over did the warm colours .Thanks for pointing it out.

    Lovely low angle photo of the leopard, the raised paw and the face with scars shows the confidence and grace of this animal. The eye contact is good too. Thanks for sharing.
