Description

Whenever I have seen a wild cat, it seems a bit like an apparition. This is the second time I have seen one in the middle of the road in Tahoe Donner. This one quickly retreated into a driveway as I drove by and at first I was not convinced of what I had seen, but clearly it was "different". Luckily I was wearing quiet shoes and had pavement to walk on. I could hardly believe it when he appeared back on the roadway and trotted across in front of me. Annoyed as hell my camera did not focus. At one point I was 30 ft. away.

Unfortunately part of the shot got blown out, but still fun to see so close. This bird was hunting in my backyard hidden in a tree.

As I approached, I noted a vulture fly off, then I smelled carrion. I didn't go close enough to confirm carion but I'm guessing it was road kill. The bear was about 30 m from the road.
