Bobcat, Point Reyes National Seashore

A bobcat takes a rest in a field.  I’ve been seeing a lot of bobcats and coyotes at Point Reyes lately.  I saw a bobcat and three coyotes last Friday.  I saw this guy the previous visit.  Don’t recall what else I saw that day, but I have photos of a coyote from then.  I often see things, but don’t get a chance to photograph the animal so what I’ve photographed isn’t a good record of what I saw on any given day.  When I started going out to Point Reyes somewhat regularly beginning last summer I didn’t see as many bobcats or coyotes as I’m seeing now.  I don’t know if it’s luck lately or that I’m getting better at spotting them.  Probably both, but with emphasis on the luck side of the equation.

    That’s a great profile of the cat, Jim. He never looked so much like his African kin than in this fine shot.

      Thanks John. It’s nice having a green background for a change instead of the straw-colored backgrounds I’ve had before with bobcats.

    Another great shot! I really enjoy coming to your blog to see the latest of your captures. We saw a bobcat cross the road two days ago here in North Texas…. They are doing a good job here on the edges of suburbia as the top predator of the smaller mammals.

    I enjoy your blog & have added you to my blog roll so others can see your fine work.

  3. Beautiful photo, Jim! I love the colors and nice lighting… I would love to see a Bobcat out in the wild like this…
