With caption @natgeo photo by @stevewinterphoto During my search for jaguars in America I photographed his cougar with the help of a #remotecamera set up in the Santa Rita Mountains, near the US-Mexico boarder. Although I'm often led down the right trails with the help of local biologists - in this instance those from the University of Arizona - nothing is guaranteed. Thankfully camera traps don't discriminate and sometimes they return gems like this young #cougar.
Join me this Thurs Jan. 18th for my National Geographic Live! talk in Ontario's Centre In The Square theatre. I'll share with you the rewards and perils of my adventures "On The Trail of Big Cats" along with other unexpected camera trap subjects. For show details and tickets visit
