Bobcat in the Rain
Lens: DA*200 Camera: K-3 Photo Location: Northern Minnesota ISO: 800 Shutter Speed: 1/320s Aperture: F4

The red pine behind this little guy is about 30" in diameter. The bobcat seemed at home in our front yard. We no longer have any gray squirrels, although the black variants and red squirrels are still around.

Good catch. I like to see wild animals comfortable around our homes. The squirrels might have a qualified view of that though.

I'm impressed that you got the picture.

I've spent a fair amount of time out in the bush, but I've never seen a wild cat, either a Bobcat, Canadian Lynx or a Cougar in the wild. Interesting note about no longer having gray squirrels around. Some of our relatives had a skunk show up in their neighbourhood a few years ago. First time ever, A few days later a Great Horned Owl showed up. Shortly later on they noticed both the Owl and the skunk were gone. Apparently the Great Horned Owl is one of the few predators of the skunk.

Thanks. It was a lucky encounter. I suspect a female had kittens in the forest nearby and this kitten was exploring. The national forest runs for about ten roadless miles north of our property. We also have a flock of wild turkeys that visit so I am hoping Bob returns for Thanksgiving dinner!
