… Thursday afternoon, One and I went out the front door as she loves to explore the street side of the yard. Her chair in the office overlooks the front and she observes the daily comings and goings of other critters, birds and such as well as delivery people and guests. Seems logical to thus spend time out there and that is likely the developing new norm for her. While she was exploring the area behind the mailbox, a wet and hungry bobcat came across the street and started a hunt for a rabbit he saw duck into a bush down the street. One was preoccupied with her search so I moved down the street to get some shots of my predator friend. I like this shot in particular because he was moving rapidly close to and over the ground to narrow the distance before launching a full blown attack. I didn’t see the final result as I figured I had better get back to One before she decided to check this guy out. She does have a successful record of surviving three attacks she launched on bobcats … that is enough.
With my self imposed isolation I am getting a lot done in my photographic, gem cutting and flying endeavors. I got a nice flight in this morning working ridge lift on the west side of the San Francisco Peaks and after a half hour of that it was off to wherever, and I got some great shots of the lakes up on the plateau. There is one lake (only during and after the snow melt) that has a neat little island in it with a beautiful pine tree crowning it. Maybe I’ll send that out tomorrow night. It was cool up there, 24F at 12,000′ and not much sun.
Have a beautiful day … be safe and keep breathing … smiling too.
