I love photographing animals. Althought this is not a live animal, I felt that with a little minor editing it could appear more realistic.
The cougar is native to the Americas. This large, solitary cat has the greatest range of any large wild terrestrial mammal in the Western Hemisphere,extending from Yukon in Canada to the southern Andes of South America.
The cougar pursues a wide variety of prey. Primary food sources include deer, elk, and bighorn sheep, as well as domestic cattle, horses, and sheep, particularly in the northern part of its range, but it also hunts species as small as insects and rodents.
