Leopard on a Lazy African Afternoon

Species: Leopard | Location: Serengeti, Tanzania

This leopard was taking a break from both heat and hunting by lazily resting in a tree for the afternoon in Tanzania. A combination of afternoon glare and camouflage presented challenging conditions for image capture.
