Our last drive in the early morning turned out to be the best. It was a little before 6am and we encountered a leopard in our headlights, perhaps 20 feet away from the front of the car. A few seconds later, it was gone. A half hour later, we encountered a sloth bear. The only shot I got of the full bear was while the jeep was still moving, and left a little to be desired in terms of sharpness. The bear then proceeded to snuffle into an ant-hole for a few minutes, offering us great shots of everything but its head, before ambling off into the forest!
