A few weeks ago I visited Chester zoo to get some more photographs for my college course. They have a large jaguar enclosure where you can see these majestic animals prowl around, having said that they can be notoriously difficult to get a shot of but when you do it is worth the wait.

  • I thought it was cruel that Lynne had kept the jaguar in her car boot all the way to the Lakes, as soon as she opened the boot he bounded off, we only saw it again in the pub having a beer later that day!! lol!!
