Ranthambhore first big cats

After three drives without seeing a Tiger and only a brief, but close encounter with a Leopard, which startled us as much as much it alarmed a troop of Langurs by shooting out of the vegetation and pausing on the track right in front of us, we finally caught sight of a Ranthambhore Tiger. We also managed a shot of sorts of another Leopard that was lurking in dense undergrowth.

This female had taken over a Sambar Deer killed by a Mugger
Crocodile and was relaxing in the afternoon heat after having fed.
Leopard in very gloomy conditions at dusk.
Its camouflage works well in this habitat.
