Mother Jaguar and Her Cub

Photo and caption by Susan Roehl

In September of 2012 I visited The Pantanal in Brazil with a photographic tour. We were hoping to see jaguars, and we were not disappointed. We had several sightings which were quite astonishing and lucky. One day a female and two cubs were approaching the shoreline to drink water. The first ones to arrive at the river were the mother and one of the cubs. The second cub was trailing quite far behind still in the bushes. The two jaguars were near the shoreline to drink when both looked back trying to see where the other cub went, and this is when I took the photo. An amazing experience.
