This big cat was observed as he rested in this tree between Alpine and Marfa in Far West Texas, USA. After spending several hours gradually getting closer to him, he acted as though he began to accept my presence. After burning up seven rolls of film, I left him as undesturbed as he was before he was photographed. Here in the mountains of West Texas, Mountain Lions are very numerous although it is rare for the average person to catch a glimpse of one of these secretive cats. Among the main prey for Mountain Lions here in the Big Bend area are Mule Deer, White Tailed Deer, Turkey and Javalina. Male Mountain Lions may reach an adult weight of approximately 200 lbs. - Jeff Heinatz, photographer.
