OS photographs rare black panther

British wildlife photographer Will Burrard-Lucas (OS 2002) has captured a series of high-quality camera trap photographs of a wild melanistic leopard (otherwise known as a black panther) in Africa. It appears this is the first time this has ever been achieved, with previous captures being taken from great distance or with poor-quality trail cameras.

The images were captured at Laikipia Wilderness Camp in Kenya, using Camtraptions camera traps.

The full story behind how the images were taken can be found in this blog post: http://blog.burrard-lucas.com/2019/02/black-leopard-in-africa/
