The Dark Knight

It was early morning and light was very low. Suddenly I saw a black silhouette turning on a branch on the Crocodile bark tree and started climbing down stealthily tail first. Chips of wood sprayed on the leaf litter and the powerful muscles of the leopard’s back ripple as it comes slithering down the tree trunk. Black leopards are fascinating, and to see one in such form, eyes pinned to the camera, claws unsheathed, was indeed a rare opportunity. High ISO to gain shutter speed in low light.
