A silhouette of Maxabeni male leopard on top of a termite mound waiting for a warthog to appear from a burrow.
I’ve seen many leopards on top of termite mounds but this was by far a great setting with the early morning sunrise and a huge termite mound on which Maxabeni decided to wait at the top. (FYI the warthog did not come out of his burrow).

Editing used on this image
Most of the settings were done on the camera and with the right placement of the vehicle with the sun rising in the background, it darkened Maxabeni and the mound as well as created the colour in the sky. I did drop the shadows making it darker and lifted the temperature for more colour.
