Lynx rufus


A widespread wild cat of the world, the Bobcat is so named because of it's bobbed tail. The reason for it's large distribution is due to their adaptability of a wide variety of environments.


Snuck up on a bobcat at Lynch Canyon before she caught me watching. She disappeared into the forest and I followed. For 15 glorious minutes, she sat and watched me, cleaned herself, and relaxed with me watching only 40 feet away. Finally, my first clear, free-roaming wild cat picture.
