Much too dim for leopard pictures

The clouded leopard enclosure in the Malaysian Woods pavilion has new and improved dimness-increasing film, which means one can, just, almost, see the clouded leopards curled up on top of the big hollow tree, if you hold still and let your eyes adjust. Taking pictures of them is right out, at least not without a tripod and more space and time than the steady passage of people would properly afford.

I did get this image of a rather disorderly spider web along some of the plants, though. No substitute for leopards but I like how the light interacts with the leaves.
