Pumas in Patagonia

Mountain Lions (aka pumas, cougars, catamounts etc.) have eluded me here in the United States, so last May I went to Torres del Paine National Park in Chilean Patagonia.  I had learned that it was much more feasible to find and photograph them there.  I also hired a guide who was worth every penny in finding mountain lions or, as they are known there, pumas.

If you’d like to see more of my photos of Torres del Paine pumas, click here.  Click on the first photo and then just toggle through them using the left and right arrow keys on your keyboard or use the navigation guide at the bottom of each image.  By the way, the link is to a new website I am building.  It is still in the early stages, but the majority of the puma images I plan to use on it are there now.

The trip was a great success. I’ll do a more detailed report on it in the future.
