These pictures are of a bob cat caught on scouting cameras.
Loads of time and patience goes into this type of field work.
We start by looking at the area for animal signs. This includes tracks, scat, scrapes and depredation. Once we find an area that looks promising we set up many cameras. The height they are set, the angels they face are all very important. Next....time and waiting. We record weather conditions and activity of all animals in the area.

I was thinking about that too. He seemed different than ours.

Those are awesome pics! Can you ask him to turn around next time? Laughing
