PHOTO OF THE MONTH:
‘Blessing Rain’ by Paolo Torchio
Paolo described the moment: "I spotted the leopard in a perfect scenario, with dead trees, green grass, and perfect backlight from the sun. The weather was fast changing, and suddenly a powerful downpour started without warning. Once in a lifetime… the cloud did not cover the sun, and the magic combination of golden drops of rain gave to the situation this unrepeatable atmosphere."
