Pulled cards on 6 cams this weekend and had a good run on bobcats.
[looks like the same cat in the same place; 2:50 PM, Feb. 25]
You can just make out the spots on the back of the ears. They can only be seen from the front when the cat is crouching in defensive threat with ears laid back. The cat blends well with the dead leaves.

This one looked oblivious to the camera.
Compare the leg bars on this cat and the next one.
Spotting of the forebody and barring of the forelegs differ in each cat and are more easily distinguished between cats than patterns on the sides and hindquarters.

The size of those ears tells me this one is a young adult. There's something in the stance that says "cute little kitty". It also seems unaware of the camera.
