DescriptionVery early in the morning, local spotters go out in search of this enigmatic animal and usually we trek for miles with our equipment through deep snow to where the animals were spotted. Snow leopards move mainly early in the morning and after 4 pm in the afternoon, in the meantime they take shelter in places inaccessible to us, enjoying the sun. The photo shows an adult female animal with 2 of her 18 months old youngsters who are just on the verge of independence and will continue on their own. An unforgettable experience and a challenge to consider a second expedition. Photo: At that time of day, the lighting conditions decline rapidly and a higher ISO is needed to get reasonable results.
