Texas Bobcat!

Quick post as I do not have much time!

Bobcat track
(Austin, TX 2/12)
 I am near Austin, Texas this week for a workshop and brought along a Cuddeback Capture. I arrived at the lodging Friday at 4:30 pm and was out on their hiking trail by 4:45 looking for a likely location. I found some OLD bobcat tracks in the mud and hoped to get lucky. It rained for the first 30 hours I was here and I got no photos the first night. But it cleared up last night and I literally ran out to check the camera before breakfast. i found fresh bobcat tracks on the hiking trail and I just "knew" I caught an image of my first bobcat. I opened the camera and it indicated two photos. I had to get all the way back to my room and fire up the laptop to confirm what I already knew. I couldn't have asked for a better portrait for my first bobcat!

I have two more nights of trapping. :) I showed the photo to one of the staff members and she asked me to please not show any of the guests so they wouldn't be afraid... sigh.....
