Default Bobcat on the trail today,,,,,

Went for our usual weekend photo hike and came up on this Bobcat. She only stayed long enough to get a few shots....Lighting was tough with the overcast skies...

This is only the second time i have photographed a Bobcat in the Wild!!

Very nice Eric! Where is this? Bobcats are very elusive.

Located this Guy at Turkey Creek In Brevard County Florida (10-5-08). This is the second one in a year I have spotted. The other time was in Merritt Island near the space center.

Well done. Rare enough to see one of these guys, great luck to see one with your 300mm ready to hand and not fumble the chance!

What a great photo-op, Eric! As everyone knows, these guys are very reclusive. The chance to get some relatively open/clear shots is rare!

I've found that cloudy skies often create a slight cool cast to images, and this can probably be "warmed" up a bit in Photoshop or other editor.

Great work!
