Wildlife photographer Will Burrard-Lucas spent six months capturing the once-in-a-lifetime shot, but he took it and it is phenomenal.
In a detailed blog post, Burrard-Lucas says he has specialized in photographing wildlife at night—a look into a night-time kingdom where nocturnal animals such as hyenas, leopards, and lions in nature.
The image was taken with strategically placed remote cameras in Laikipia County, Kenya. Specific photo settings were: f/5.6, ISO 1600, 30 seconds, 23mm.
Some of these pictures and several other never-before-seen pictures of the leopard appear in his new book, The Black Leopard, which you can buy now!
