Frédéric Larrey's Image

When this six-month-old snow leopard cub wasn’t following its mother and copying her movements, it sought protection among the rocks.

This was the second family of snow leopards that Frédéric photographed on the Tibetan plateau in autumn 2017. Unlike other regions, where poaching is rife, there is a healthy breeding population in this mountain massif as the leopards are free from persecution by hunters and prey is plentiful.
