L for Lucky – The Leopard

Taken on 19th March in Ranthambore at 7.30 am on route no.1

This is perhaps my luckiest day during wild life safari when we spotted two big cats in one day.. Leopards they say are more elusive than the Tigers and even more difficult to spot in the wild. We saw this beautiful cat slyly making its way through the bushes when I spotted it. Remember I spotted, neither the guide nor the driver nor wifey nor sonnie ! I, ME, Myself spotted it…. !! I exclaimed I spotted a tiger but when the jeep stopped we could see it clearly.. it was a Leopard.

Although at a pretty far off distance… the moment we spotted him it did lead to the voices in the jeep becoming hushed whispers immediately…

He didn’t wait or even take notice of us almost… just kept going on its merry way.. guess after a tired night full of attempted hunts it seems to be dejected at not having managed any prey this night !!!

The reason I call him Lucky Leopard is that after spotting him, it was on this very day that I spotted my first Tiger in the wild !!!! πŸ˜€
