Capturing the big cat is one of the most exhilarating experiences of a wild life photographer. Not only because of their majestic presence, the real excitement I guess is purely the rush of adrenaline  when you find yourself up close and personal

Use of the tongue and the tail

First lessons of life
Learning to trot like dad
That's called a feast

Sinister Mista Leopard

Leopards are one of the most illusive big cats in the wild. This one took us an entire day to track down. It was at the Governors Camp Mara. Early morning we heard that a Leopard was hiding inside a thick tree line. We rushed to the spot and waited for a couple of hours. Not succeeding to get a glimpse we went off and then came back again in the afternoon. Still nothing. Finally at the stroke of sunset, with failing light and on our way back to the camp, we decided to give it a last shot.
