Weekly Photo Challenge: The Darted Leopard Dance

For this challenge, capture two images  ofIMG_1901 the same scene or subject.

Darting a leopard is a dangerous undertaking. The dosage of the tranquilizer must be exactly right, the timing perfect, and the men must have nerves of steel.

IMG_1906Today, Mr Leopard woke up, just enough to make the men do the Darted Leopard Dance, characterized by some rather fancy footwork.

IMG_1918Peeking at a dazed leopard isn’t always a good idea – even if the cage is almost closed.

IMG_1914Another growl – and the dance is repeated.

Warning: Don’t try this at home, folks..

PS: The leopard was transported to his new home, where he now roams free – like a happy big cat should.
