Art of camouflage…

Confused why we are showing you an image of a rocky mountain filled with patches of snow? Well, look closer.

If you look closer at the image, you’ll notice a magnificent well-camouflaged snow leopard sitting/lying on the cliff.

Desai captured the animal during his visit to the Himalayan mountain range in North India. The photographer was visiting Kibber Village, the highest village in the world, to catch a glimpse of a snow leopard. About 8 km away from the village, he spotted this big cat.

Native to the mountain ranges of Central & South Asia, snow leopards use their camouflaging skills to ambush their prey. They have also earned the title of “ghosts of the mountains”.
