During my visit to Brazil particularly The Pantanal, the dry season was approaching. The rains were less and the rivers were becoming lower. Jaguars came to the shoreline out of the forest to drink from the river and to find mates. This male jaguar I saw one day with a female on the beach, but the next day he was by himself staying out of the intense sun while resting in some bushes along the shoreline.
