Often, I show you photos of my beautiful dogs at sunrise or sunset in my posts.
I also saw this "cat" next to a trail... which was foretelling my wildlife stories.
I visited a trail camera at the end of last week. You can see my hand approaching it to check it.
The mountain lion checked out the bear tree and then followed in my tracks. He did follow my path and was photographed by several trail cams (I captured lots of great photos that I'll share later). Fortunately, with distance, the lion fell further and further behind me (I know based on the times that I checked the cams compared to the times when he passed them). So, I don't think that he was actually following me. He was simply following the route that I've figured out that the lions like to use and have staked out with cameras.
Then, this morning, I found this absolutely delightful photo of a mother bobcat (facing the camera) and her kitten. It was one of about 60 photos of the two of them interacting. I've never captured such extensive footage of two animals interacting in the past. I'll share more of the photos in the coming days.
