A Cougar, considered a god by the pre-Columbian Maya religion and the Aztecs, that I here photographed, while it was enjoying the crisp air of a December morning, in the Torres del Paine National Park. As it is the early morning, it’s doing one last round of reconnaissance before hiding in the shadow of some rock to sleep the whole day.
