The epitome of power and elegance, this huge male spent the afternoon sunning himself on a large rock and as the air began to cool he decided that he had business elswhere. With a casual glance at his adoring audience he rose, stretched, yawned and was gone! The Sri Lankan race of Leopard is one of the largest in the world mainly because in Sri Lanka this is the top cat -not having to live in the shadow of Lion or Tiger. For this same reason they are less nocturnal than Asian Leopards elsewhere. Image taken at Leopard Rock,Yala NP, Sri Lanka. Framed by a friend.
