The light looks pretty good in all of them Vickie. You never know what you're going to find do you? Looks like you found a few good things. How did you spot the bobcat in the tree? Excellent shots.

Thanks, Rodger. No, you never know what you will find. That's why we always have a camera with us, right?

When I heard the crows fussing, I walked over to that area. They and other varied birds were perched or flying about that section of tree so I knew generally where to scan with the binoculars. At first I didn't see anything, it took awhile but finally saw a mass and with focusing saw it looked like fur. From a different vantage point I found the head. This is where EZ zoom and small spot focus is indispensable to thread focusing through the twigs and branches.
