This bobcat is one of the ones at the Living Desert Reserve in Palm Desert, CA. I have actually seen two in the wild in our local mountains. The first time was when I was driving down the mountain and I glanced out the window into a wash. Yup. There was a bobcat right there! Another time, I was up in Garner Valley visiting my cousin and as I turned the corner to go to her house, I glanced down into a little wash with a culvert (I'm always glancing down)...and yup, there was a beautiful one! I quietly stopped my car, grabbed my camera, tiptoed over to the wash, and got one photo before he quietly and quickly went through the culvert. I knew he would come out the other side, so I waited and there he was! Once he glanced up and saw me, however, he took off!!! Unfortunately, I don't remember now which folder those pics are, but these are so much closer and better! Aren't they a beautiful animal? Nice kitty, kitty! Sunday Stills Challenge for May 10, 2010.
