Those shots are awesome. I see a desert bobcat once in a while but they are really shy and scat quickly. Looks like a well-fed cat!

Yes the Lynx here are exactly the same. I've lived here all my life and have never seen a lynx up close. This was completely unusual for me. The time spent shooting this lynx was short and sweet. I managed to do what I want to do on every encounter and that is get as much as one can in a super short time. This time it was 12 minutes 682 images. All of which are quite good in focus and speed. shooting in sun light is definitely not my fav and some of the grass shots are messy but beggars cant be chooser's.

This country is covered in bunny's ( Snow shoe Hare ) So they have an abundance of fresh food running around. He had a kill lying in the snow right there a few feet away. He picked it up as he moved off.

I have a good amount to play with for a bit.

Wow Jeff!! These Lynx shots are as the old saying goes “the cat's meow”. ;-)a Simply outstanding.

I had an experience with a bobcat a few years ago that I'd like to share. (not with the 7D Mk II but he 40D) I was driving through a willow thicket over a road that wasn't much more than a trail. As I rounded a bend in the trail I saw three tiny balls of fluff and as soon as they saw me they disappeared into the weeds that bordered the trail. I carry a predator call that sounds like a rabbit in distress so I grabbed it and blew for a few seconds hoping they would be interested and come back out. Well they didn't

But, as I was focused on the spot where they disappeared, I noticed a movement out of the corner of my eye. It was a full grown bobcat coming straight towards me. She stopped about thirty feet away. As luck would have it she was in tall grass and the sun was directly behind her. She was looking for that rabbit in distress. I wiggled around in the truck seat trying to find a position where there was no grass in the way. She stood there for 1 minute and 30 seconds before turning and slowly walking back out of sight. I managed 16 shots during that time. Not very good I'm afraid but one of those experiences that you never forget. I attaching one shot from that day. Not a very good shot but still a reminder of what happened that day.

A wonderful capture, given the short duration!

Very cool experience.. I was very lucky in that I was not in the truck and he was very sleepy. I got quite close so the quality of the shot went up.

It is what I do wildlife for.. The thrill of the experience is the high for me, and you I thinks. I'm a mad man on the shutter button in these times.

You were very close.... the first photograph you posted made me think... Jeff doesn't shoot at zoos, does he? Then I read the story.

very cool experience.
