Somewhere in this incredible photo is a leopard - but many are struggling to spot it.

The predator is perfectly camouflaged as it has a lie down on the rocks in Rajasthan, India.

Sudhir Shivaram spotted the cunning animal when he was exploring in the small town of Bera - and has enjoyed teasing pals who don't even believe there's a leopard in the pic.

Sudhir, 43, was hoping to see the big cat when he visited the area, as it's known for being a popular habitat for them.

The photographer said: 'The place is really popular with leopards because of its rocky terrain.

'The leopard had come out of its den and was resting.

'I maintained a good distance from it so it wasn't disturbed.

'I took the photo with the leopard slightly off-centre, so it's really difficult to find.

'Only a few people could spot it after a while.

'Many guessed wrong, while some even thought there wasn't anything in the pic.'

He added: 'The leopards are so well camouflaged in the habitat.

'They are the most adaptive animals and can easily service on smaller mammals, birds and sometimes local cattle.

'As long as we do not disturb them, they will not interfere in our lives and will co-exist.'
