  1. These shots are phenomenal. All they’re lacking is orples. πŸ™‚ On a serious note, I truly am impressed with your shares.

  2. Oh wow Madhu! What a stunning capture of this beauty! Now that is life indeed! Stunning post and photo hon. πŸ˜€

  3. Compliments. You’re extremely lucky to have caught a leopard. (chui in swahili) Never could! Hiding all the time. πŸ™‚

  4. I can’t think of the last time I had such a blissful sleep…maybe I should climb a tree and relax! Wonderful shots!

  5. My opinion is that cats (not only but especially!) of all size and colour are adorable so these shots couldn’ t be more perfect for my liking, Madhu! Beautiful – laid back with all problems on life forgotten completely πŸ™‚

  6. It absolutely is, Madhu! πŸ™‚ Darn! You just reminded me that I still haven’t managed a ‘Joy is’ πŸ™‚

  7. That one makes me sleepy.. πŸ™‚ Ah.. the joy of a full stomach and warmth of the sun blessing you…!

  8. Hanging leopards! Marvelous. I should have been there!!! The photos are mind-blowing, Madhu!!

      1. I absolutely agree….There is something cute about those animals…Even if they are not Little cats at all…!!!

  9. What an awesome capture. He looks so satisfied and free of any troubles!!! I am feeling so blessed, that you shared your joy again, Madhu πŸ™‚ Thanks so much for the linkback.

    1. You are welcome. Your ‘Joy’ series is a brilliant idea. And I thought this one fit the bill πŸ™‚

    1. Thanks Sonia. I love that paw tucked under his chin. It slipped while I was clicking the wider shot above! πŸ™‚

  10. He looks like one happy cat. It’s tempting to want that kind of lifestyle, but it probably has its drawbacks, like having to run down and catch your food all the time. πŸ™‚ Wonderful pictures.

    1. Thanks Lynne. He certainly seemed to be purring πŸ™‚ (Do leopards purr? I forgot to ask!)

    1. Thanks Ian. I am even more amazed by how they manage to drag up heavy kills all the way up those trees!!

      1. Same here! Looking forward to your next posts already πŸ™‚

  11. ha! that’s exactly how i feel! this is day six in the same clothes as the airlines tried to find my lost bags! these images gave me a chuckle… they are also gorgeous! z

    1. Losing my luggage is my worst nightmare when I travel Lisa. My daughter teases me no end, but I always carry a change in my cabin bag however constrained I am for space. Hope you are reunited with your clothes already. Appreciate your taking the time to read in the midst of your baggage woes πŸ™‚

    1. I used to loll around on trees when I was young. But I don’t particularly remember it as being this comfortable Colline! πŸ™‚

  12. I guess the view from the treetop is magnificent,
    but it can’t see it with the eyes closed… πŸ˜€

    Very well captured, Madhu… πŸ™‚

    1. The second is a close up of the same leopard Frank. I bet sneaking up to his kill would have galvanized him into action πŸ™‚

    1. It was indeed Sally. We waited a while for him to wake up, but he didn’t budge πŸ™‚

    1. Thank you Naomi. I thought this contented cat was perfect for Kan’s ‘Joy is’ series.
