Indian Leopard - Nagarhole National Park, India------------------------------------------------------------
I've been non active in the forums for awhile. In Sep I was in South Africa. Oct in India, and leaving next week for Churchill for some Polar Bears for 2 weeks.
This past October I spent 20 days on safari in India. The jungles were lush and very green after the summer monsoons which provided an amazing backdrop for shooting in. This male Leopard was rather cooperative sleeping away in a tree during the evening. I photographed this cat the moment he came down the tree at 5000 ISO at only 1/40 with the help of a beanbag. I particularly enjoy the blurred paws given the slow shutter speed.

Lovely image - I dig the movement as well.

Really nice keeping the head in focus while the rest is moving. Composition is also interesting.

Nicely doen. Almost a 3-D effect here.
