A big surprise!!
Yesterday I posted a few images from our road trip thru the desert. Todays images are from the surprise that we got while on our little road side lunch break. We had pulled off to the side of the road, just to grab a quick plate full of crackers, ham and cheese. Jeanne's angle was a little bit better than mine to be able to see down the road. She looked up and mentioned that there was something in the road. I handed her my binoculars, and she said it was a dog, but that it had a very short tail. When I leaned over to look...it was not dog at all but a very large Bobcat! It was several hundred yards away, and trying to hand hold my heavy camera with a 500MM lens proved to be shaky at best, but there is no questioning what we got to see. At one point it laid down right along side the road, like it was going to take a nap. Then started walk towards us, finally getting to about 200 yards, before causally walking back into the desert!
