Meet Bageera from The Jungle Book!
Leopards one of the most elusive cats, getting a glimpse itself is quite a challenge. They swoop around the forest like a shadow, be it a day or night, doesn't matter. If one gets a clear image of these mysterious cats, then it has to be a blessing from mother nature. That said, if you get a chance to see and photograph the shadow itself, then I think it is not only a blessing from mother nature but from the universe itself. I was blessed by the universe to get the glimpse of the Malenistic leopard or the black panther that roams the jungles of Tadoba Andhari Tiger Reserve. This dry bamboo forest gives enough shade for this mythical cat to vanish and make use of the darkness from the shadows to disappear even in broad day light.
