Handsome Bobcat

Portrait of a handsome bobcat.

Handsome Bobcat

I saw this bobcat for the first time a couple of days ago.  He’s very well-marked.  I’m used to seeing bobcats in Point Reyes National Seashore with little or no distinctive markings on the torso.  This guy has very pronounced spots and stripes on his trunk.  I think I’ll remember him as “Handsome Bob.”   Unfortunately, Handsome Bob didn’t stop in the prettiest place.  It looks like a badger has been through here shortly before Bob and really tore the place up.  I saw a coyote stop here and hunt a couple of weeks ago.  It must be (or was) a good spot for gophers and/or other rodents.  Click here to purchase a print of this image.

    That is a very pretty cat. Much more prominent markings than the cats I’ve seen. Nice find.

    Definitely a healthy, handsome cat. I hope he’s staying dry out there today!
