snow leopard on the rocks

This female snow leopard was on heat and calling and demonstrating as she slowly came down the mountain towards us. She came down vertical cliffs and bounding down rocks with an ease that made us hold our breath. It was an amazing four hours at 17000 feet in the mountain kingdom of Ladakh in India.
