How many snow leopards can you spot in these incredible pictures? There are more than you think


Along the cool desert mountain valley there is a bunch of snow leopards that are completely obscured by dots.

It is impossible to spot them with the untrained eye – but once you see them you wonder how it is not so obvious.

Living up to their name as “the world’s most unavoidable cat,” a group of snow leopards can only be seen with a keen and patient eye.

Ismail Sharif, 41, a wildlife photographer who specializes in capturing snow leopards in their natural environment, has taken incredible pictures in the Spiti area of ​​Himachal Pradesh, India.

Ismail’s collection of images has been taken over the past eight years.

His Brain Teaser images have earned him the title of ‘Snow Leopard Man of India’.

He said: “It takes a trained eye to see them in their natural environment in the world. But every time I do, it’s like recognizing one for the first time.”

Even when Ismail is leading the snow leopard photography expeditions, it can be very difficult for him to recognize them despite his experience.

He said: “There are occasions when snow leopards are masters of camouflage and even the guides of major expeditions find it difficult to identify them.

“So if you go on an expedition, make sure the person leading the expedition has done it enough times because it is a very special expedition and requires such expertise.”

These images follow another remarkable picture of a leopard taken in the Himalayas of northeast India.

It was found to be indiscriminately lurking between rocks and snow.

Photographer Saurabh Desai started trekking in the Spiti Valley in 2019 with the sole purpose of photographing “Gray Ghost” cats.

After nearly three years of searching, Desai finally managed to capture the brown leopard five miles from the towering village of Kibber.

And the big cat looked at him too, its piercing eyes looking straight at the camera.
