Congratulations to kdacharya for winning Feature Thread of the Week with 35 votes - View Previous Winners


I was able to spend some time with the Pumas in Patagonia last month. It was probably one of the most exhilarating experience of my life and I cannot wait to go back again.
there are so many experiences and stories that include the bitter sweet one that gave us the privilege and the honor of naming a few weeks old puma cub, which will follow later.
Our guide was unbelievable and had an uncanny sense of puma behavior and is a puma whisperer. We will most certainly go back again

Wonderful shots. Do you know if there have been any attacks on humans there? We have been having some issues up here in the NW, esp. with mountain bikers. I don't worry much unless there have been recent sightings in the area, then Itry to keep my eye out when riding.

These are fantastic KD ! Just an incredible set of images. What an experience and I'm so happy for you. I'm like a few others, these give me goosebumps just looking at them. The first thing I noticed was the size of their paws. What a powerful and beautiful cat. Congrats, and well done Bud ! Did I vote, you bet I did !

Stunning photos. I went to Patagonia last October, had some photos of pumas. But they are no match to yours. I also want to go back. Having said that, may I ask the name of the guiding service you used? Thanks.
