Weekly Photo Challenge: Inside


Whats that inside that tree?  I am always amazed at a safari guide’s ability to spot the invisible behind the foliage or other camoflage.  I took this photo specifically to show just how difficult that can be.  This leopard at times completely disappeared into the leaves of the tree – seemingly inside his own private compartment.

  3. Oh wow! Amazing how the leopard hides so well in foliage that is not the same color as he is. I don’t know that I would have wanted to be that close IRL, but it’s really cool to see in a photo!

    • Thanks Anne – they are incredibly stealthy for such a brightly colored animal – and we were extremely privileged to spend some “quality time’ with him.

  4. I had the same experience recently on a guided tour through the Costa Rican rain forest. Without the guide, we wouldn’t have seen much other than rain forest and monkeys!

    • Thanks Madhu! It took a few shots to get his eye in focus through the foliage but it was a fun shot!

    • Thanks Colline – we were lucky to spend some “quality time” with this animal that most people only get to see a glimpse of…
