DH and I were checking some stuff out this morning in the front of the house and as we walked outside we saw our resident bobcat catch a rodent. I ran back in for my camera and Ned stood still. Bobcat walked and sat down about 20 feet away in the shade to eat her meal. This was the only shot I could get. She started to walk back toward Ned but was in the sun and I could not focus. When she got about 10 feet from Ned he shooed her away. She did not seem to be a all frightened of us, but she could be rabid. Nice to know she is keeping the rodent population down somewhat. She is the size of a medium sized dog and sort of mangy looking. This was the first time I saw her, although all my neighbors saw her last year. Bobcats are pretty much loners so there are not usually more than one in an area.
I am a retired Interior Designer who gravitated over to quilting. I have gotten into Art Quilts and fiber art as they fit my personality better. I currently live in Arizona where the sunsets are spectacular. I will miss my helper, Sammy.
I have fallen in love with dyeing my own fabrics. I just love being a mad scientist at times.
