Go See the Onça Pintada

It's been too long! I return bearing gifts.  They are secondhand, but I believe you will enjoy them, just the same.
I have to share some of the best photos of the onça pintada (pronounced: "own-suh  peen-tah-duh"), or jaguar, that I have seen, yet, in the almost six years that I have lived here. There are several national news crews that have gone on special assignment, that never quite succeeded in capturing more than a glimpse of these majestic creatures.
Photographer, Dev Wijewardane, has just returned from a trip to Pantanal with amazing photos of this regal beast. Visit his site to see rare shots of the onça pintada hunting capivara in Pantanal.


Questions and comments are welcomed! While anonymous comments are allowed for those without a blogger account, please leave a link and (or at least) A NAME, so that we know who you are.

Anonymous authors are only good for ransom notes & random quotes (one's difficult to sight, the other is tough to cite).

So, for the productivity of discussions on this site, please leave us your alias, given name [aka secret identity], handle, ID, nickname, nom de plume, or otherwise e-version of your John Hancock. Feel free to make one up, just for us. We'd be honored.

Thanks for playing! :)
