14th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Face Off

We had been following a jaguar swimming for some time and I noticed that every now and then a fish would jump out of the water probably scared by the presence of a large mammal. I really wanted to capture the image of a jaguar facing a fish out of the water but knew very well that patience and luck would be essential to my endeavor.
