For the Love of Jaguars - Nat Geo Live

A new video via Nat Geo Live YouTube Channel featuring a 21:31 minute presentation about jaguars by Alan Rabinowitz. The first few minutes are a bit about the history of jaguars moving from Europe into the New World. He shares some fascinating beliefs about jaguars among the Olmec and other ancient cultures as well as modern jaguar culture. He talks a bit about modern issues that have endangered the jaguar and how he got into studying and protecting this lovely animal. He shares a lot of information about jaguars such as they have a complex way of communicating with each other.

The jaguar featured prominently in a shape-shifter paranormal romance book I wrote years ago and have yet to self publish for Amazon Kindle. (So many projects, so little time.) Still, I took the time to watch this video. Perhaps other authors will find it a great video resource for researching the jaguar, jaguar culture, Olmec, central America, Brazil, or Mexico.

"Jaguars have captured the imagination of humans since ancient times, but face extinction in the modern day. Alan Rabinowitz, dubbed the 'Indiana Jones of wildlife protection' by Time magazine, has spent years seeking out these mysterious animals in order to protect them."

Extreme photo cropping

Update... the video has been removed since this post was first written...
The ideas discussed in this video brought to mind one mistake I see photographers making when they're selling their photos on custom products in the Zazzle marketplace. There can be a tendency of new (and some experienced) shopkeepers to want to showcasing their entire photo on the custom products available at Zazzle rather than fill the design area available.

Below is an example of what a rounded corner mouse pad would look like if I fit the photo to the mousepad. It would have large white borders.

Below is what the mouse pad looks like when the image fills the entire design area.

Cropping, even extreme cropping, can be our friend. Cropping off some of the Lake Tahoe shoreline doesn't take away from the subject of this photo. We can still see the blue water and shoreline. But, large white borders at the top and bottom definitely distracts…

As you can see in the image below, the size of the heart design can change if needed to match the added text.
