All summer long, a bobcat has been walking past a trail camera next to our house that has a super bright flash.
Well, I discovered one reason why she might have been staying in a small territory over the past couple of months. There's a bobcat in the foreground of the next photo, and there's another one in the background. I think the bobcat in the foreground is a kitten!!!!!!!!!!!
Yipee! I love getting glimpses of our wildlife's secret world like this. The funniest part is that the dogs and I were probably on the deck a very small distance from these two sneaky cats!
Although we have bobcats around our house regularly, I've never captured photos of a mountain lion near our house. They seem to give the road and the houses a wide berth. I have trail cameras that are around a half mile from our house, deeper in the forest, that see mountain lions regularly.
Just recently, I captured photos of a lion heading through our neck of the woods.
The leaves haven't even started to change yet at lower elevations. At our elevation, almost all the leaves have turned color.
