Handsome Bob; Point Reyes National Seashore

Photo of a bobcat resting.

Handsome Bobcat

I saw this bobcat a few days ago in Point Reyes National Seashore.  I had previously seen him a couple of times in March.  I named him “Handsome Bob” then because he had very distinctive spots and stripes.  When I saw him the other day he had no problem with my car stopping.  I was there maybe 10 minutes when another photographer parked.  Bob was still unconcerned.  About 5 minute later a third car stopped.  That was his limit.  Bob went from being relaxed to tense and then did a quick disappearing act.  I’m now thinking of him also as “Three Car Bob.”  In this photo Handsome Bob has his rump on a rodent mound and his legs in the burrow.

    Like Pat said! Funny. It can be awfully hard to get a bobcat all to yourself these days!

      Thanks Pat. It’s getting harder to find bobcats and coyotes lately. One of each yesterday. I guess they’re more nocturnal now with the longer days and warmer weather.
