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.
One of my favorite photos of a Bobcat pouncing was taken by Drew Fagan. This photo of Drew's appears in my book, Mendonoma Sightings Throughout the Year. 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.
Thanks to Clay and Drew for allowing me to share their photos with you here. To see Drew Fagan's artwork, here is his website: http://drewfagan.com/
