"Got him!! Bobcat in the Everglades!"


Sunrise, US
          

I was not the only one looking for wild birds in the everglades. Found this young bobcat female lurking under some cabbage palms just after dawn. She was in the dark and the sun was not fully up but I was able to get a few shots before she ducked into the foliage.

Thanks for looking

D300s with 200-400mm + tc1.4, tripod with sidekick. ISO 800, F8, 1/80 (using cable release)

Very nice find Larry. I'm guessing this one is immature - no ear tufts.

Right you are. I was hoping so much she would not move until I got a shot. With that low light she had to stay stationary. Lucky was with me, and I'm not even Irish!

Great capture,Larry. I'd bet it's been at least fifty years since I've seen a bobcat in the wild. Way to go !!!

Beautiful pictures, I got a Bobcat once at Wakodahatchee Wetlands, but it was in the grass and I didn't have long enough glass for a good shot.

Right you are. I've saw them at Wako several years ago, but the distance and the foliage made it an impossibility to get a shot.
At Loxahatchee Wildlife Refuge the mow the marsh several times a year and this opens up some land so you can see. This gal was on a bank between the forested area and the marsh. Thus I got lucky.

Thanks for looking.
