As usual, if Saturday is predicted to be sunny, I will be out somewhere in search of that new bird. This morning I decided I would visit VCDB aka Village Creek Drying Beds as I hadn’t been there for awhile. The weather was beautiful and I was soooo enjoying the peacefulness. Of course I also really want to take pictures 🙂 This was just not going to happen today, the ducks where too far away and spooked whenever I tried to get close, my favorite songbirds were just not singing…. Oh well still enjoyed the 3 mile walk. I was going to head to the car when I decided that one more walk down this particular path that usually provides luck was in order….too early to go home. As I made my right I saw something in the path, I don’t carry binoculars as I have enough weight with all the camera stuff, I use my 400mm lens as my binoculars. So put the tripod down, took a peek and WOW, there she was. Bobcat sitting in the path. I snapped a shot knowing it was not going to be clear but figured I would get one of those “documentary” photos so my husband would believe me 🙂
Walked a bit closer and she layed down, that seemed strange. Took another shot.
Walked closer and she decided she’d had enough of me and scooted into the brush. So I continued to walk but as I did I realized that where she ran off to was water….didn’t think she would swim away so as I walked I kept an eye on the bushes, sure enough she was hiding behind some reeds.
What a thrill! I’ve seen many a photo of bobcats at VCDB but figured I’d never get one.
