Bobcat!

 

What I wanted was a photo of a Bobcat laying out in the sunshine in a wildflower meadow. What I got was entirely different.

The first encounter we had with a Bobcat in California was in the dry Panache Valley. I was trying to get into a good position behind some scrub to get a photo of a quail. Unbeknown to me the Bobcat was using the opposite side of the same bush to stalk the same quail. However, his desires on the bird were far less benign. The quail moved out into the open and we both made our move.

I’m still not sure who was the more surprised the Bobcat or me but needless to say there were four extremely raised eyebrows between us. I suspect he just tutted, muttered something like ‘bloody photographers’ under his breath and calmly trotted off.

The second encounter we had was a week later in Yosemite, or rather a mile or two just outside. A young animal crossed the road in front of the car as we were going into the park on our last day. I managed to park and fire off a few poor shots before it disappeared into the darker depths of the forest.

Maybe next time.
