Got up early to walk the dogs yesterday morning. We came a cross a Bobcat patrolling the neighborhood in the predawn. We spotted him while we were still about a hundred yards away. He was moving along the edge of the landscaping in the front yard of a home just a few houses down the road from where we were. He turned the corner and then followed the cross road down to the alley. There he stopped and just sat next to the fence to watch us approach. Probably a 25 to 30lb cat. I took this shot from across the street. Sorry for the poor quality... it was twilight out and all i had was a cell phone camera... not a good combination!
