14th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Into Darkness

The light was about to disappear when this big male jaguar decided to cross the Corixo Negro just in front of our boat. The perfectly flat and calm water was almost black as the sun had already disappeared behind the horizon but the trail of moving water left by the Jaguar reflected the last bit of light forming a beautiful white line with the jaguar on one end.
