To all those celebrating Christmas today, merry Christmas!
I have procured a simple gift for you: a series of photos of big cats in the snow. Scroll down to view the pictures and their credits. I hope you like them!
The first photo is of a jaguar (Panthera onca) having a yawn. I love how the jaguar’s yellow-orange coat and black rosettes are contrasted by the faded, snowy background. This picture was taken by Eric Kilby at the Stone Zoo in Stoneham, Massachusetts.
Finally, the featured image is of a cat that one would expect to find in the snow: a snow leopard (Panthera uncia). It consists of a mother snow leopard and her cub, and it was taken by Tambako the Jaguar (Emmanuel Keller) at Zoo Zürich in Switzerland.
I hope you liked the photographs! If there were any that caught your fancy, click the photographer’s name above to be taken to their website. There you will be able to view more of their work.
Thank you to all of the featured photographers for designating your work under Creative Commons licenses! I would not be able to run this blog without your generosity.
