This beautiful capture of a Cougar also commonly known as a mountain lion is superb. Actually cougars are fairly common around my neck of the woods in southwestern BC. They are always in the back of our mind (along with bears) when we go for a hike. I’ve never met one during a hike and this picture gives me reason to be very thankful for that. I have encountered the odd bear though. Anyway this is another simple picture, where the subject truly is ‘King’. The photographer has captured the intensity of this wild creature beautifully with no distractions. Telephoto lenses are certainly great for that.
