My most precious photo yet. Our guide had not seen a jaguar use the Amistad-Chirripo corridor in 12 years.
A snapping twig signalled our presence. She looked us right in the eye. Manners were forgotten as a torch was flashed in her beautiful face and she was gone in all but 3 seconds.
Here she will be revered as a Goddess amongst the Biri and Tepiki Indians. Abroad she is a carpet or a fur coat.
Taken in Amistad Biosphere Reserve, near Chirripo.
