In My Backyard
Our bobcat came for a visit.
Seen yesterday, strolling in our back yard, then plopped in the November sun a few yards from the house. A bobcat is smallish but muscularly powerful, even doing a slow amble. And look at that face. So fierce, so contented, so . . . . catlike.
I have written about the bobcat before and taken pictures of her stalking outside our dining room windows.
We see her (him?) often, patrolling not just the weeds and meadow by the woods, but smack in our back yards. This photo was taken by my neighbor Gwen, and it was no challenge for her to get a shot of this elusive hunter. The bobcat simply laid down in the lawn in full daylight for half an hour and practically posed.
If I had whiskers like that I'd want my picture taken too.
