Spotted

A leopard gingerly crosses the branch of an acacia tree in Tarangire National Park, Tanzania. “We were almost back to camp when someone in our party spotted this solitary leopard from well over a hundred meters,” writes Your Shot member Logan Watts. “As we slowly approached, it seemed relaxed and began to move up a branch in profile. The dappled foliage and powerful limbs of the acacia paired with the spotted muscular pose of the cat seemed fitting for black and white.”

The Stones of Stenness may be Britain’s most ancient stone circle. Erected during the Stone Age on the Orkney Islands at the northern tip of modern-day Scotland, the stones likely formed part of a larger complex linked by religious ritual.
