Bobcat at ground level


I had placed a second photo of this cat on an earlier post, mainly because I liked the bobcat looking away into the swamp with a little haze in the air. This was the first picture as it walked into the camera, because it was close I was able to identify this same bobcat on a different location months later. Since then I have seen otter tracks as well as mink, raccoon on the edge of the pond and it's a good deer and elk crossing.

Terrific picture, with the just amount of flash. Good work as usual.

Sometimes I can just get lucky. It's either a low flash during the day for a good photo or a very dark night picture of the same animal when I start messing with the flash. But sure makes it worthwhile when everything goes right. I can't count all the photos I've deleted and never shown.

That's a good one! I find Bobcats really amusing for some reason...

Fabulous photo. Which camera did you use to get this one. For that matter, what are your 2 top most favorite field cameras?

Barbara, I use several different setups combining 3 different cameras and 4 different control boards, this gives me a wide range of options for different locations and animals.

I do prefer the Sony P41 for ease to build and dependability, match that with any type of control board and you can get most any animal or bird. Next would be the Sony S600. I do build my own cameras and so all the repairs, I like the quality of the photos taken with the home brew cameras.

The bobcat was taken with an Olympus 380, an old model but still works nice for closeups.
