While surveying deer and javelina populations from above ground, the Arizona Game and Fish Department were able to spot a different animal — a mountain lion.

The mountain lion was seen on Saturday in an area near Sonoita and Patagonia. Thanks to Brian Aragon, Game and Fish shared the photos on Facebook. 

Take a look at them below.
