Tree hugger crop by kayaksailor Tree hugger crop by kayaksailor
This male bobcat was less than 100 feet from my home :heart: he stayed around grooming, stretching and posing for over half an hour!!!

These, of the bobcat, deer, bugs and snakes, are actually IN my yard :love: We live in a very rural area with a large cattle ranch that surrounds our property.

There are some from zoos (lion and tiger types) but we're lucky to have lots of interesting creatures around to photograph!

I appreciate all the faves :iconsomeredhearts: I know I have a huge gallery, but I find myself referring back to older images and I keep getting faves and comments from way back so I can't make myself delete them :shrug: Guess you'll just have to add me to your "watch" list and see what new comes up :wave:

The most i find in my yard is a spider, a few birds, rabbits, frogs/lizards, and if lucky i see deers or my cat...

I live in a suburban place so i don't get as much access to nature like you.....


I added you to my watch a loooooong time ago..

Well you've got a good selection too! More than what I grew up with, lol :giggle: We've got jack rabbits in the "neighborhood" but they don't like to pose :laughing: and they're not as cute as the cottontails :heart:

Thanks for the long time watch :iconhyperglompplz:

Yes, but my collection is very limited and they are all small and hard to notice....


I never changed my user name.... I think i added somewhat a year ago maybe... cuz you were one of the first photographers i added...

Are bobcats common in your area, Ruth?
Reply
:iconkayaksailor:
kayaksailor Featured By Owner Feb 6, 2012
They live around here and are probably more common than we know/see...If I were to count I'd say we've had maybe a dozen sightings in almost four years.

my husband ended up late leaving for work 'cuz he kept wanting to watch (and he didn't want to disturb the kitty :giggle: as he would have to drive right past where the cat was to get up to the road)

not so many mice - that we're aware of anyway :laughing: but lots of pocket gophers! And now that we keep our cats indoors all the time the gophers are taking over :shakefist:

he was acting like one! grooming, licking his paw and rubbing his head, rolling around and then stretching with his paws in the air :love: and then curling up and taking a brief snooze :heart: It was soooo fun to watch! He even stopped and nommed on some grass :laughing:
