A comely bobcat

A comely bobcat paused to look at the camera and then was gone. From Rich's recent dispatch from the Cleary Reserve cams.

What a fabulous capture!

I saw a fox trotting around my neighborhood today, but he was gone before I could think to grab the camera. They're very common here, but cagey.

You need a camera trap in your backyard, Kitt.

Yes, very pretty cat!

My dog once cornered a Lynx... it looked NOTHING like that! Quite frankly, I never expected to see a Lynx in this neck of the woods; I was quite happy my dog didn't attack it! He's a big boy (Akbash Dog), but I wonder how he'd have fared. He has the sense not to attack the bears, either...thank the gods.

Anyway...on to why I stopped by:

Have you seen this clip?

There's no sound...but notice the little rat to the left, behind the house...before he tries to enter. I LOVE IT! ...and thought, for some reason, you might get a kick out of it, too. ;)

Thanks, Owlman! (he hooked us up with the clip.)

That is a great video. Owlman has solved the problem of pesky squoyals.

Seeing a lynx is a special treat. I know they have been recorded in Colorado, but have no idea how easy it is to see them. Wonderful.

I'd capture a lot of cats and maybe raccoons, I think. (Surprised a family of seven earlier this summer.) I did have foxes at my old house, not far away.

Cool pics, Kitt. Esp. like the fox on the cold tin roof.

Nice, once I went with my mom to the beach we sleep in a cabins and in the way my mom we're driving from time to another a mountain lion jump in front of the car to across the street, well I have the picture in my head sorry about that but that was very scaring.
