Chile. Early morning. The Puma had just stopped circling us, we thought he was going to attack, but it didn’t happen. He just sat down and started to sniff the air. A few minutes later he decided to climb up a mountain and go to sleep. We waited from 9 am until 6:45 pm watching him sleep at a distance. Once the sunset, we packed and left.
Did he have to climb up the mountain and sleep? Did I have to wait for this mountain lion to climb down? Could I have tried to find another mountain lion? Did I waste the day?
fact of the matter is no one can predict the future, what could be the wrong
decision today can be the right decision for tomorrow as long as the decision
is made keeping enjoyment/ fulfillment /happiness during the process and not
just the outcome.
How to take better Puma photos
Place your mountain lion away from your background and do your best to place it in front of very light or very dark colors, their fur is very close to grey and in black and white photography that helps bringing out all tones. Once you have spotted your mountain lion ask your tracker how close is safe and get as close as possible. Move very slowly and stay calm keeping eye contact at all times spend as much time as possible with this big cat. If you see resistance move away NEVER FORCE YOUR presence. Use a very high shutter speed as they move at lightning speeds unless you are looking for a different creative look.
