… or “on the job training” and that is what this Bobcat kitten is doing as it stalks prey in a neighbors garden. This was shot in 2012 and the Mom, had three young ones that she was caring for and teaching how to survive on their own and I think they all made it as they remained looking very healthy throughout the rest of the year. I love predators, but One not so much anymore as she continues to remain strictly an indoor cat even with the door open, it is up onto the kitchen table and she views the world from her safe spot on the table where mule deer and bobcats do not roam. I miss not getting the outdoor shots of her, but not the dread that goes with having her chase bobcats. So, I guess there is a need for creative shots of her indoors.
It was a beautiful day and this afternoon I got out and walked the ponds in Page Springs. A pond recently harvested and drained attracted a lot of Great Blue Herons and I think I got some pretty good shots of them; it was a low contrast day so not sure what they will look like … hopefully a few good ones … just fun to shoot somedays!
This will be it for the week … Friday I’m bringing the cameras I have down to the school and expect that the kids will have some pretty big smiles! Thank you.
Back Monday morning … keep breathing and look at the beauty that surrounds you … truly we are blessed!
Give me to gladly go
My way and say
No word of mine own woe;
But let me smile each day
