Nature is fascinating, and it never fails to astonish us with the infinity of wonders it bestows on us every day, such as the images obtained by a professional photographer in India, in which two lovely felines pursue one other in perfect synchronisation before the camera.
Mithun H is a 31-year-old wildlife photographer based in India who has a particular fondness for felines, as seen by the majority of his photographs. But he had a tremendous ambition that he had yet to realize because of the challenge he represents: to catch a leopard and a panther together.
Despite the fact that Mithun had previously captured separate images of Saaya the panther and Cleopatra the leopard, he waited almost four years to capture them together, and the results are breathtaking. The panther’s jet black is depicted in the spectacular photographs as the leopard’s shadow in the foreground.
“However, the wait was worthwhile. “I could wait six years for a moment like this,” the cat lover joyfully declared.
Mithun understood that when Saaya and Cleopatra were near one other in the woods of Kabini in Karnataka, it was the moment he had been waiting for, and he was not willing to miss it for whatever.
The man stayed in one spot for six days until he got the image he wanted; he knew the animals were mating but couldn’t see them. The long-awaited encounter took place on a frigid winter morning, and the magical infatuation started.
“In most courting couples, the male takes the lead and moves first, with the female following closely behind. But in this duo, it was clear that Cleo was in command, with the Panther trailing after. Mithun continued, “This was captured on a weird winter morning when a single alarm brought me to this amazing vista.”
The publication rapidly became a trend after the photographer posted the photographs on social media. The beautiful creatures’ beauty astounded and awed Internet users, who expressed their adoration in a flood of comments.
“I’ve never seen such an enthralling pair!” “How beautiful nature is!” cried a moved social media user.
