17th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest
Huge hunt in Chile
A puma, considered a god by the pre-Columbian Maya religion and the Aztecs, that I here photographed, while it was enjoying the crisp air of a December morning, in the Torres del Paine National Park. As it is the early morning, it’s doing one last round of reconnaissance before hiding in the shadow of some rock to sleep the whole day. A wary and solitary animal , who indeed loves moving and hunting while hidden in the shadows of the night and during the day, it’s utterly rare, almost impossible to spot.
