I often share that the southern Arizona high desert is paradise. I believe that. But, that does not mean it is without its perils and dangers. Every ecosystem needs its checks and balances. And that means predators.
Outside of us humans, who are the ultimate predator, the ruler of the sky island predatory food chain is the Mountain Lion. Like its namesake in Africa, this feline is the king of the American forest. It is also one of the most beautiful animals in the woods, unless of course if it is chasing you.
This photo was taken with an 800mm lens at a very safe distance and a wall between us.
