This is a repost of my original image. The lesson from this is… DO NOT do ANY BULK EDITS. The images disappear. I lost all comments and features.
On one of our weekend walks, we had the wonderful experience of meeting up with a young male bobcat male. He just sauntered down the path we were on without a care in the world. He came about three feet from me and I just kept snapping pictures, but had to get this portrait image of this handsome fellow. As it turns out, the USGSA tracks the whole family by their markings. They have the images and movie now in their posession as part of their study. What an exciting experience this was. :o)

If you would like to see the movie my honey took of this lovely creature, you can view it at:
It really shows how relaxed this lovely little character was.
