After the panther coming out from an unexpected bush it wanted to cross the road possibly to quench its thirst on the water hole nearby, Despite of having ample space to cross it went back to climb on a fallen log, it was then something surreal I witnessed for a couple of seconds, as the dying rays of the dusk wanted to expose something ! As they say truth sits in the lips of dying men, the dying sun exposed the hidden treasure, I saw those panther’s rosettes well visible as in the picture, the charismatic walk on a fallen log, I can’t describe the feeling I was going through, feels good to be blessed from Mother Nature with such a lucky sighting in my life !!
