Default Here kitty, kitty

I was out on a photo trip, to get some wild turkey pics, and this came by. I had to shoot in a hurry as she had seen me.

Did you take it home, and give it a name like Sylvester? :shock:
Cool! How did you get your camera up so fast?

I had it on a tripod waiting for the turkeys to come tyo roost. When I turned slightly she saw me. I actually took a burst of six but this was the best. I saw her coming for about 50 yds.

DX6490, was about to say that it was either a lynx or bobcat.

I don't know how common they are where you are, but I'd love to see one in the wild. I don't believe either exist up there in Mass (no Lynx for sure, I doubt bobcat.)

Even if its blurry, it's still nice. Wish I was there.

You're so lucky! I love big cats. This type is especially rare to see on film so thank you!
