  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 beauti  ful 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.
