Through the last 8.5 years of exploring SNP and its wildlife I've seen Bobcats several dozen times. Most sightings have been quick glimpses of animals running across the road. Only twice did I have prolonged views, and once it was too foggy to get good photos and once the light was too low to get good photos. I had only ever dreamed of getting a photo like the one above. Today that dream came true. An absolutely astonishing 15 minutes in the presence of this young Bobcat and what I believe were its two siblings. Middle of the day, plenty of light and at about a 40 yard distance.
Thank you Denise for such a wonderful day and thank you Bobcats for this incredible experience!
