An evening with the ghost

Sitting on a hill we waited to spot leopards in the neighbouring areas. Soon the sunset and nothing was seen. Just then an adult leopard slyly came out of a cave and disappeared in the dark, so fast that we barely even saw her. Our local guide said there would be no more activity and that we should return. I refused and decided to take a walk around the hill through fields. If not the leopard I hoped to spot some other nocturnal creatures. As we walked, it soon was completely dark and all we had was a single torch and our camera gear. As we walked through the tall grass our local guy heard something in a rock cavity above us. A flash of the torch and there it was, a leopard perched on the rock looking at us. It stared at us and then to the moon. We froze and with those cold hands pulled out our cameras, clicked a few shots and let the leopard be.
