17th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest
You wouldn’t even be able to notice it, camouflaged in the undergrowth, if it wasn’t for that curious and focused look and its small pinkish nose. The ocelot of this photograph suddenly came out of nowhere between the vegetation during a night tour in Pantanal in the centre of Brazil, I only had few seconds before it’d disappear in the forest. Certainly, it was hunting and he probably wandered several kilometres the whole night, before finding food.
