Bringing another laurel for Udaipur, Wildlife Photographer Sharad Agarwal’s photograph of a Leopard was published on the cover of an international magazine “Wildlife” of BBC in the December 2014 issue. The photo was clicked in 2012 at Jawai Dam in Pali District.

Narrating one of his biggest achievements, Sharad shared with UT how he got the opportunity to capture this eye striking photograph while touring Jawai Conservation Reserve with his friends.

“We were five people, including my three friends and a local guide. While walking near the jungle, we noticed that our drinking water had finished. The guide asked us to wait while he got some water for us. We were observing the jungle while waiting for him when suddenly a female leopard popped out behind a rock.”

“In no time, I started clicking the sequence of her movement. She started approaching us close while I was just clicking her every move.”

“Soon the beast moved away. We later realized that she was accompanied with her cubs.”

After this lifetime experience, Sharad uploaded one of the photographs on Flickr, a portal for sharing photographs. After two years, the photo was discovered by the magazine’s staff who approached Sharad.
