So when asked to speak at a festival in Bangalore last autumn, Burrard-Lucas took the opportunity to spend three days searching for Kabini Forest of India, where a black leopard recently saw.

Pay the trip out, and Burrard-Lucas managed to cross an elegant picture of a phanther in front of him.

The lucky contact prompted him forward, and eventually brought the photographer to Kenya.

“I really liked Leopard's photography, but would it be black?” The blog said.

“As I scroll through the images on the back of the camera, I was shaken and shaken [one photograph] in incomprehension, ”he wrote. “A pair of eyes are surrounded by the soft darkness.

“I couldn't believe it and it took a few days before it sank as I had reached my dream,” he said.

One picture was not enough, however.

By gaining a deeper understanding of the movements of the animal, the camera traps moved down the same track, managing another ominous shot before a male male appeared on the black-black panther.

Before the end of Burrard-Lucas's journey, he managed to catch two stunning portraits – one of the ebony jaguar standing in front of a site. Moon, and another, adjusted for dark background, "eyes of the night."

“As far as I know, these are the first high-quality camera trap photographs of a Melanistic wild leopard ever taken in Africa,” Burrard-Lucas wrote on his blog. “I still can't believe that this project is speculative [reconnaissance] there are many dividends paid at this time. ”
