A black leopard was noticed by British photographer Will Burrard-Lucas, who photographed the wild creature in Ethiopia.
These species are so seldom seen in Africa the last photo was taken in 1909, and since then there have been no more normal shots from this continent. Until recently – after all, Will managed to find and take a photo of the wonderful kitty!
Will is a British photographer who managed to capture a black leopard.
Until 2019, there was only one photo of a black leopard from Africa.
So far, only one high-quality pic of such a leopard has been taken in Africa. Despite the fact that many have seen the rare creature in words, the only evidence of its existence on the continent was a 1909 photograph taken near Addis Ababa, the capital of Ethiopia.
Local residents reported where they saw the rare animal and helped Will track down the animal.
The photographer had to wait a few days before the black leopard deigned to appear in front of the camera.
According to Will, all his efforts and waiting were worth it. After all, not only did he manage to photograph the rare animal, the photos turned out to be gorgeous!
“In all the photographs I took, the first thing that struck me was the eyes of the leopard,” Will said.
It seemed to many that such advertising would endanger the life of the tailed model.
