Photograph by Logan Watts, National Geographic Your Shot
A leopard gingerly crosses the branch of an acacia tree in Tarangire National Park, Tanzania. “We were almost back to camp when someone in our party spotted this solitary leopard from well over a hundred meters,” writes Your Shot member Logan Watts. “As we slowly approached, it seemed relaxed and began to move up a branch in profile. The dappled foliage and powerful limbs of the acacia paired with the spotted muscular pose of the cat seemed fitting for black and white.”
