Entry Description

It was my first time in an over night hide and I was incredibly nervous, having never shot in the dark before. I wait what seemed like hours before, a whisper of movement caught my eye. A leopard cautiously making it's way to drink. I held my breath and tried to not even breath as I pressed the shutter. I was totally shocked that I captured a shot, and thrilled beyond belief.
