Speaking of Cats

Why is it that bobcats always manage to be just out of range of my lens? This morning this pair was sitting in the sun, just sitting looking at me as I sat in my truck. By the time I got my window down, my glasses on, my camera powered, set and zoomed, they were starting to saunter off. They are such cats...

Maybe, just maybe, one of these days I will be close enough and fast enough to get a decent picture.

I think it's amazing you got the photo you did! Bobcats are usually very secretive and very rarely seen. At least they are up north. Maybe southern bobcats are more laid back. And TWO cats! I think of them as solitary critters. Do you suppose one is a nearly grown kitten still learning from its mother?

I've never even gotten a bad image of a bobcat, so don't be too disappointed with your luck. (I have gotten some pretty nice shots of round rocks though, but they tend to stay in one place.)

Our game cam tells us they are here, but we never see them. Lucky you!

I agree-- it's still a nice photo and a wonderful sighting for you! And two seems amazing... My only glimpse of one was long ago and far away, so congratulations!

I love it! The one living close to me stays out only when it's dark, so the best I have are flash photos from a distance (meaning nothing I'd share). I envy you seeing them in the daytime.

Since young just left the dens to find their own territories, I wonder if they're juveniles--sisters, probably--who are hanging out together... No matter: It's still a fantastic encounter!

I agree with everyone, you're lucky you got that picture! We have tons at the farm, and I've still only managed to see one or two SUPER late at night, VERY far away.

Pretty cool.
