This beautiful jaguar suddenly came racing out of the undergrowth and stood up looking at me. It was so close I even managed to get a good shot with my 200mm lens. Unfortunately it's partner was much more shy and refused to come out of the deep undergrowth.

The Jaguar, Panthera onca, is a big cat, a feline in the Panthera genus. It is the only Panthera species found in the Americas. The jaguar is the third-largest feline after the tiger and the lion, and the largest and most powerful feline in the Western Hemisphere. The jaguar's present range extends from Mexico across much of Central America and south to Paraguay and northern Argentina. Apart from a known and possibly breeding population in Arizona (southeast of Tucson), the cat has largely been extirpated from the United States since the early 1900s.

The jaguar is a near threatened species and its numbers are declining. However, its range remains large; given its historical distribution, the jaguar has featured prominently in the mythology of numerous indigenous American cultures, including that of the Maya and Aztec.
