After spending the day resting at the same spot, under tree shadows, this male jaguar (Panthera onca) went out to hunt. They usually track alligators or capybaras on riverbanks. So, they roam river margins to locate, mainly through scent, potential preys. A full frame DSLR with a 300 mm f2.8 plus 2x teleconverter was used.
