Yosemite Bobcat
May 28, 2014

These are from November 2012, Yosemite valley, California.

I was photographing Acorn Woodpeckers in some oaks near the Yosemite Lodge when movement in the brush distracted me. I went over to have a look and a beautiful bobcat was sitting in the brush. I began photographing him. He then came out of the brush and appeared to be posing for his picture. I could get within about 12 feet of him, probably could have got closer but was running into close focus problems.

Anyway, he posed for about 20 minutes. Other tourist saw us and brought out their P&S and phones. I ended up with a ton of images, with so many angles and profiles. Here are just a few.

Noticed when uploading that some of the fur colors came out more neutral, not sure why.
