Hunting The Hunters- this barren land is only hospitable to the fiercest of predator. Here they not only survive but thrive. They are at home in the most miserable of conditions. Each year I return to this ice and snow covered land with the hope to take one of these master hunters off the mountain. The intensity found in this gaze matches the intensity in the pursuit. This female mountain lion is sheer killing power having successfully taken down a mature cow elk.
