Rare Leopard sighting at Horton Plains, Sri Lanka

A rare sighting of a young leopard trying to ambush a Sambar deer on the hill in front of the Mahaeliya Bungalow inside Horton Plains around 5PM on 2nd Oct 2015. 

We noticed the leopard 15 mins or so before this video started, but then it got completely misty and we couldn't see a thing. Video starts when the mist lifted and the leopard was positioning for the ambush.

Apologies for the camera shake and quality, shot handheld at 2400mm in low light.
