Panthera Onca

This was day 7 of my latest trip to the Pantanal. We were following a Jaguar who was hunting along the bank of the Cuiaba river. His look was very intense as he was in full "predator mode". At one point he started walking by exposed giant roots, perfectly camouflaged, perfectly blending in. The combination of the jaguar and the exposed roots was mesmerizing.
