Photographer Waits 6 Days to Capture Perfect Moment Between Big Cat Couple

Wildlife photographers are lucky to witness the beauty of nature up close, and Mithun H has an interest in big cats and explores this topic in his work. He recently encountered a beautiful leopard and his panther companion in Kabini Forest Reserve in Karnataka, India.
Saaya and Cleopatra, as the two felines are called, have been a couple for 4 years, but Mithun has been following their life since 2009. He first encountered Cleopatra when she was only a cub and almost 12 years have passed since he first spotted her.
The latest picture he took of the couple is the result of a long 6 days wait in the same spot until the two appeared before his eyes after making a kill. After they finished their meal, they both turned their heads towards Mithun and he snapped the most amazing picture, while the big cats were staring directly into the camera. Over the years, he managed to gather an impressive collection of pictures featuring Saaya and Cleopatra and they can be seen on his Facebook and Instagram pages.
