A lounging leopard, in the rain and golden light

And then came the rain, a heavy southwest monsoon rain, but with a ray of golden light. The heavens had finally opened up, and I could only say... Mother Earth, as I stand before you I am eclipsed by your sheer beauty, and your glory... captivating and mesmerizing. The Indian Leopard, particularly in the southern region of India is weary of the high concentration of tigers, wild dogs and sloth bears therefore spends most of its time on high tree branches.
