"Living with Leopards"

.Just as a white summer cloud 
in harmony with heaven and earth
freely floats in the blue sky from horizon to horizon
in the same way the pilgrim abandons himself
to the breath of greater life
that leads him beyond the farthest horizons
to an aim which is already present within him
though yet hidden from his sight. 
~Lama Govinda,
The Way of the White Clouds

We implemented camera and video traps throughout the park where we thought the leopard would pass, including: a mountaintop watering hole, a path to the ocean, and across the beach.

NatGeo Wild "Leopards at the Door"

We were on assignment in a national park on Sri Lanka's magical coast, a windswept shore, where we found leopard footprints every morning. Flanked by a deep jungle of elephants, sloth bear, venomous snakes, water buffalo, leopards. Birds would flock together while deer grazed at watering holes. Crocodiles and leopards fought for the deer. The birds would fly on. The night would come and the day would dawn.
