Bobcat

Lynx rufus

Habitat:

Southern California, Mojave Desert near Joshua Tree National Park.

Notes:

Photographed during an early morning walk near my home. She was apparently hiding in the rocks, stalking a rabbit which jumped out in front of me. Since her hunt was spoiled anyway I stopped to take a few photos. We see bobcats frequently at our home they are often wandering around during the daylight hours.

I always love ears of all mammals.... Most spectacular part of them. Their ears represent their intentions and mood. Here this cat seen in defensive mood.
