[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Quite pleased with this one, it looks like she was actually in the wild, and not in a zoo. Taken at the Jacksonville Zoo, in the South American exhibit.

Jaguars range from south Texas down to lower South America. One of only two large cats in the Americas, the other being the Cougar. Very heavy built cat, not easily seen due to it's coat, which is a white underbelly with a tawny-gold backside, and black rosettes. Black jaguars are also very common. Unlike most big cats, they usually don't suffocate their prey, but instead crush it's skull. Like the tiger, they'll readily go for a swim.

Excellent capture.
Wonderful POV.
I love how she's staring intently, like possibly at a prey item.
