Apologize for the watermark in the middle. Hope you can still enjoy the image. The 1 cub that's walking had a paw injury, he was in no mood to pose :)

Carol, Dave and everyone else, Happy New Year 2019 !! 

Wanted to share the great news that I ended up working with Nat Geo Wild on a recently released/aired "Big Cat Weekend" documentary on Patagonian Pumas. It's part of an annual initiative from Nat Geo Society to spread the message of conservation and protection of Big Cats around the world.
Please check it out, it has some incredible footage, especially of Pumas feasting on Penguins in Patagonia ! 

This does not seem to be the only time I might end up working with NG and NGW teams !

Here's a link to the documentary "Man Vs Puma" (might be geographically restricted):

Congratulations, Kiran!  What wonderful news to hear of your work with National Geographic, and with your talents its very well deserved.  :) 
This is an amazing sighting of the Patagonian Pumas with four in the frame, and you got a superb image here with them beautifully lined up along that strong diagonal ridge.  Well done!

Wishing you a Happy, Healthy and Wonderful New Year, and may 2019 take your dreams even further.

Striking image. All pumas are lined up very nicely with great habitat.
