Bobcat, Point Reyes National Seashore

One thing I like about photographing during the winter at Point Reyes is the lush greens in the ranching areas.  The rainy season is just about over and it will be just be a matter of time before the greens turn to browns.  I was fortunate to see and photograph this male bobcat several times this winter.  He was almost always on lush, green grass.  I’d like to tell him I’m grateful for that.  I haven’t seen him lately.  I hope he’s OK.  If you’d like a print of this image click here.

A while back I decided to do a series of posters featuring birds of Western North America.  They are carried by the Wild Birds Unlimited store in Novato.  Recently, I decided to do one featuring the wildlife of Marin County which is the county I live in just north of San Francisco.  I started off with the idea of just doing mammals, but that has grown to include birds of Marin.  The posters are for sale now at the Viewpoints Gallery in Point Reyes Station.  That little town is located near the entrance to Point Reyes National Seashore.  They are  also available at Fabulous Framers in Novato and will soon be available at Wild Birds Unlimited in Novato.  As it has turned out, most of the subjects were photographed in Point Reyes National Seashore.  Here is a sample of what the posters look like.  My favorite bobcat is my poster boy for this sample.

    We were just up there in Pt. Reyes Station. I wish I’d known about Viewpoints Gallery. We checked Toby’s and the co-op gallery on the corner. I’m not sure I’ve been in Viewpoints, but I’ll look for it next time I’m out there. Great shot of the cat, too.

      Thanks John, and thanks for mentioning Toby’s. I hadn’t known it had a gallery until you mentioned it and I googled it. I’ll stop in there next trip. Some day we should meet up and have a cup of coffee in Point Reyes Station.

      The posters are a great dollar value. They’re 16×20 in size with an 11×14 print. Twelve subjects so far. I use Epson archival semimatte paper. The price is only $20. I normally sell 11×14 prints on the same paper for $40. I do them for promotional reasons. My name and website are on them. I’m not sure how long I’ll keep doing it, but for now it seems worthwhile. I also have a line of Yellowstone wildlife posters at a gallery in Gardiner, Montana.

    Beautiful photo. He looks smug, and is lacking only the canary feather stuck to his lower lip…
