Bobcat

As usual, if Saturday is predicted to be sunny, I will be out somewhere in search of that new bird.   This morning I decided I would visit VCDB aka Village Creek Drying Beds as I hadn’t been there for awhile.  The weather was beautiful and I was soooo enjoying the peacefulness.  Of course I also really want to take pictures 🙂   This was just not going to happen today, the ducks where too far away and spooked whenever I tried to get close,  my favorite songbirds were just not singing…. Oh well still enjoyed the 3 mile walk.  I was going to head to the car when I decided that one more walk down this particular path that usually provides luck was in order….too early to go home.   As I made my right I saw something in the path, I don’t carry binoculars as I have enough weight with all the camera stuff, I use my 400mm lens as my binoculars.   So put the tripod down, took a peek and WOW, there she was.   Bobcat sitting in the path.  I snapped a shot knowing it was not going to be clear but figured I wouldFirst sighting get one of those “documentary” photos so my husband would believe me 🙂

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Walked a bit closer and she layed down, that seemed strange.   Took another shot.

Walked closer and she decided she’d had enough of me and scooted into the brush.  So I continued to walk but as I did I realized that where she ran off to was water….didn’t think she would swim away so as I walked I kept an eye on the bushes, sure enough she was hiding behind some reeds.

Love the white stripe on the ears.

What a thrill!  I’ve seen many a photo of bobcats at VCDB but figured I’d never get one.
