    Where did you find this amazing subject and did you have to use a motion tripped camera?  That is awesome.

    Beautiful photo.  I’ve only seen one once, and that was north of Seattle.  Interested where you took this photo.

    Thanks for the view……..  ;o)

    Phenomenal shot! I have seen a few in the woods in Ca and Oregon but none ever stayed still!

    Would you OK me doing a painting from your photo?

    Great shot!

    My last bobcat sighting was at Pt. Reyes, on the road to Limantour Beach—it’s been almost a year.  We did see big cinnamon-phase black bear on the shoulder of 44 east of Old Station on Friday.  That was a treat.

    Beautiful shot.  We see bobcats around our place in Shasta.   What beautiful animals.

    I saw one about 20 feet from me along the river at Anderson River Park about a year and a half ago. Didn’t have a camera out and was a little nervous he would run.
