Description

I perceived the growl emitted by two Leopards and immediately discerned that they were a mating pair within the confines of the forest. I proceeded to park my vehicle and exhibited great patience for a duration exceeding 45 minutes, awaiting the moment when I could observe them. Eventually, I witnessed their approach towards the road where I had stationed myself. Upon reaching the road, they assumed a seated position, facing me. The female Leopard, who goes by the name “Aster,” engaged in courtship behavior with the male, known as “Lucas,” in order to initiate mating. However, due to his indolent nature, he displayed limited interest until abruptly rising, redirecting his attention towards me, and proceeding to mate with “Aster.” The spectacle of witnessing the large Leopard engaging in copulation with the comparatively younger female was truly remarkable. They proceeded to mate several more times before eventually retreating together into the forested area. Through the application of ethical photography practices and unwavering patience, I was afforded the opportunity to capture this majestic creature.
