Jaguar Heading For Cover

"Jenni", estimated to be a three or four-year old female jaguar (Panthera onca) so-named by the local jaguar biologists, heads to the thick brush for some cover. Jenni had been napping in the open along the banks of the Cuiaba River. As she snoozed, the 1 boat that had been watching her nap in the open, soon became 20 boats watching her nap in the open. When Jenni woke up she found herself in front of a number of telephoto lenses. Poor thing, not only was she awoken rudely from her nap but now she also had to scamper for cover. Jenni gave us a second or so for a few shots, glared at us, then silently scurried into the thick brush.
