#FridayVibes – Friday Feline Frenzy!

Greetings from Seattle! I won’t spend too much time talking about the elephant in the room, but I do want to wish each and every one of you the best through these difficult times and hope that you and yours are healthy and getting the support you need. In my limited excursions to get groceries and other necessities, I’ve witnessed nothing but kindness and support out there in the community, and that’s exactly what we need – we are truly in this together. I’m not one for standing still, and to that end I am working diligently to prepare some exciting new distance-based learning opportunities to unveil soon. Stay tuned!

One of my last trips before buckling down here was to Patagonia, with the primary goal of photographing pumas. These are notably solitary animals, whom rarely congregate or hunt with others until it’s time to breed. When cubs are born, they remain with their mother long enough to grow strong and learn to hunt before venturing out on their own. I was fortunate to capture not one but two such families on this trip – one with adorable young cubs, the other with rough-housing older siblings. To be able to follow these two groups and observe their similarities and differences kept me busy. They were surprisingly indifferent to my documentation of their days, whether they were lounging, scrapping, or enjoying some fine dining. Along the way I captured some other denizens of the area as well.

Enjoy the photos, have a wonderful weekend!

    I was also in Pumaland in the Amarga region a few days ago. Just before the shut down. Sad that we did not meet.
    Your photographs are just amazing

    Wonderful pictures of two beautiful families. I don’t imagine you are too happy about having your travels curtailed, but this may give you a chance to do some of those things around the house ( and yard) that you never have time for. Stay safe, and try not to go stir crazy. Don’t want to lose you!
