I love the way this cat’s shadow echoes its profile. “I spent close on a year working on a cattle ranch in Brazil,” photographer Adam Bannister writes. “My role was to track down, find and then habituate Jaguars. It was part of an initiative to try to convince land owners and ranchers to not kill the cats but keep them alive and promote ecotourism. Photographed here is an ocelot—sitting on a road beside a stream attempting to fish.”
