A Bobcat paid a visit to Clay and Laura Yale’s yard.

Clay Yale noticed this Bobcat staking out an area of Clay's  yard. Bobcats hunt rodents, and they seem to especially enjoy Gophers. When I look at Clay's photo, though, I wonder it this Bobcat is enjoying some sun.

I call it a "once in a lifetime" photo. Drew was working in his studio - he's a renowned artist - when he saw the Bobcat. When Drew trained his camera on the Bobcat, the Bobcat pounced.
