Stealth

Ever since I came back from my first trip to the Pantanal two years ago, I have been wanting to photograph the "essence" of the jaguars; their stealthiness, the elegance of their movements, and the way they perfectly blend in with their surroundings. I went back to the Pantanal in September and decided that the best way to achieve my objective was to use very low speed panning.
