Jaguar’s Head

Jaguar's Head

I took this shot at a farm in Costa Rica when I was visiting last January. This beautiful cat is in a large cage built and owned by the farmer who devotes his time to the well being of the animals in his farm. It was not too easy to take this shot, for I had to stretch my body on a fence about 5 feet from the cage. Additionally, the cage bars were intrusive, but with a bit of luck and patience, I was able to get that one shot, with my EF70-200mm Lens +1/4 Ext. at 1/800 sec at f/10, ISO 800
