Spot the leopard!

(The title could refer to the name of a cat, but it doesn’t.)

This is part of a series by famed wildlife photographer Art Wolfe, who has a series of hard-to-see wildlife (I’m not gonna tell you where it is, as that would spoil future fun).

Can you spot the leopard (Panthera pardus)? This is not too hard, so I won’t give a reveal.  It was sent by reader Dorsa, who said it took her a while to find the beast.  This is, of course, what prey see—if their vision is nearly the same as ours.

Don’t look at the comments before you have a good search, as someone’s revealed the location.

    I had many experiences in Africa where I had very good reason to believe I was quite close to a leopard, but I never saw one. At times, I could hear or even smell a leopard known to lurk in the area of my field site. I cam across kills and footprints (she had a cub) and was once followed for 2 miles by three very nervous warthogs that were sticking by my side, I believe for protection. Yet, I never once set eyes upon her. There coat pattern is invisible in the dappled light of the forest.

    This was pretty easy to spot, however, considering several seconds it took me… I would have already become MeowMix.

      That’s what I thought by the time I saw it.

    Its as well that she can’t see the gazelle sitting to the left of the tree!

    I found her but it took some seconds of intense watching. Once one discovered her beautiful face perfectly hiding in the environment the photo gets a magic touch.

    I see him! And it’s a good thing too! I wouldn’t want him to pounce on me!
