16th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Into the light

This was day 3 of my latest trip to the Pantanal. We were following a Jaguar who was walking along the bank of the Cuiaba river. He was walking in an out of the dense vegetation and roots that covered the riverbank. The light was amazing. I asked Vanderlei, our boat driver, to keep a bit ahead of the jaguar.
