Bobcats from Today

Here are a few photos of the bobcats seen at Lake Los Carneros today.  I didn’t get any great shots of the mother, so these are all of the young male.  The cats were not in a cooperative mood today, probably because they had just been chased by a couple of unleashed dogs.  The careless owners didn’t seem very troubled by the trauma their dogs had inflicted on the local wildlife.  There was another surprise canine appearance while we watched the bobcats; a coyote dashed across the path and bounded down the hill towards the hidden cats, whereupon it vanished into the brush and wasn’t seen or heard again.  Strangely, the coyote’s presence didn’t seem to bother the two bobcats.
