wilpattu“We ventured into the Wilpattu National Park in the hope of photographing the new male leopard living in the Thalavila and Panikkavila area. We spotted the leopard coming out of a thicket and with the help of our safari driver, we tracked him to Panikka vila. The leopard moved to the small water hole nearby. With the help of golden light of the setting sun, I managed to capture this photographs of the male leopard that we spotted was known as “Y””
