Puma - Puma concolor, Cile 2017. Mi spiace annoiarvi con una descrizione lunga della foto, ma credo che ogni foto meriti un approfondimento. Questa è una foto alla quale sono particolarmente legato, per tanti motivi. Un'esperienza condivisa con il collega ed amico Andrea Pozzi. Un'avventura epica che ci ha lasciato tante soddisfazioni fotografiche ma non meno, emozionali. Dopo aver terminato il nostro annuale phototour in Patagonia, decidiamo di trattenerci qualche giorno per provare a fotografare il puma. Quella mattina con il nostro tracker avevamo deciso di battere una zona dove era stata avvistata una mamma con due cuccioloni. Decisi a non farci sfuggire l'occasione ci muoviamo quando ancora fuori è buio pesto. Arriviamo in zona e nemmeno il tempo di capire dove eravamo che ecco attraversarci la strada i 3 puma. Troppo buio, troppo veloci. Nemmeno il tempo di tirare fuori l'obiettivo che se ne erano già andati. Scendiamo assieme al nostro tracker ma sembrano persi. Intanto inizia a piovere abbastanza pesantemente. Ci diamo il cambio e cerchiamo di avvistarli ma ormai sono nascosti chissà dove. Quasi perse le speranze e poi eccola una testolina che spunta dai cespugli. Trovati! La pioggia sembra finita, gira tutto abbastanza bene e ci mettiamo in attesa a circa 70 metri, per non spaventarli. Il cielo si fa grigio, il meteo in Patagonai è abbastanza inclemente e cambia nel giro di pochi secondi. Riprende a piovere, questa volta arrivano secchiate d'acqua con raffiche di vento impressionanti che ci spostano di peso. Ho visto il treppiedi con il 600mm alzarsi e spostarsi di un metro prima di riprenderlo al volo. Ho perso 3 anni di vita...... Attendiamo diverse ore ma niente, non si muovono, non si alzano. Ancora due ore e sarebbe diventato buio. Poi uno dei due cuccioloni si alza, spaventato da chissà quale rumore e decide di andare a infastidire il fratello. Sempre troppo nascosti dai rami. Ancora in attesa sotto la pioggia... Il sole sta per tramontare quando finalmente si muovono per andare a caccia. La mamma apre la strada, i due giovani dietro attenti e curiosi. Qualche fugace scatto al volo, li seguiamo a distanza ma sappiamo che sarà per poco, poi spariranno dietro le colline. Invece si fermano per pochi secondi. La mamma è nuovamente sdraiata, i cuccioli si voltano verso di noi e sono lì, perfetti, come in quadro. Un paio di scatti e poi tolgono il disturbo, il buio sta nuovamente avanzando, li vediamo scomparire in lontananza. Stanchi, esausti per quella giornata così dura e così emozionante ce ne torniamo in auto con il sorriso stampato in faccia. Un giorno che non si dimentica tanto facilmente. Un saluto a tutti. Ale

Hi Alessandro,
your caption is very beautiful and also gives us that we read your / your emotions ... I can only imagine what a beauty! I know you are a professional in the field and many of your shots I admired them here on Juza, but I am also very honest in my comments and a photo for me is beautiful or ugly regardless of whether made by GVF or a complete stranger.
Not having put the HD is difficult to make an objective assessment, it seems that a little bit of detail and there is too much noise. But what does not convince me is the different intensity of light between the subjects and the environment, it seems unnatural ... it remains a great catch, for these I give you my warmest congratulations.
A greeting
Fabio

A really nice sighting, the puma is a shy subject that lives in most of South America and North America but it is possible to sight it only in Torres del Paine, in other places the possibility to see it only 1% if not less. I still remember a guide in Brazil who told me that he had only seen him once in his entire career. That said, so the photo is precious because spotting a puma is difficult, three even more! Beautiful composition and I think that the loss of quality is due to a very strong crop and the ISO 5000 certainly did not help :-)

Hi Francesco!
Thank you for your passage and comment.
No, no crop pushed, only by composition, less than 10%. ;-)
