Bobcat by night

The cat must have gone to modeling school.

We got several pictures of it, and this was the most refined pose.

The eye reflection was minimized by using the camera's red-eye reduction feature.

Other predator(s) left sign at the site, but false daytime triggers had filled the memory before their visits.

We repeated the set with the controller set for night time pictures only.

That is one handsome looking Bobcat.

That's interesting about the red-eye reduction feature. Since it basically fires off a series of pre-flashes before the flash, I'm surprised it doesn't startle the critter into flight and/or drain your batteries too quickly.

Beautiful pic. Did you pay him his modeling fee?
