Very nice pictures. I like the 2nd and 3rd bobcat pictures - the first one's branch is in the wrong place to ignore, while the other two work. The birds are all very nice - always love chickadees. All are so nicely done.

Nice series. I like the shot of the timber wolf. The eyes are so penetrating.

Great bird shots at your feeder as well. Of those, the Chickadee is my favorite. For some reason I have a lot of trouble getting satisfying pictures of them. The lighting has to be good to get the exposure nailed. You did a fine job on this one.

Thanks for all the kind comments!

GW - Would you mind climbing into the enclosure and saw off that branch for me? I hope to have some time to get back there soon, and try to find a better angle...

Jim - Thanks! The feeder pictures are really not too difficult, except for my lack of patience (I find it very hard to sit & wait for them to come...) Yes, the "bob" in bobcat does refer to the bobbed tail. They are not much bigger than a housecat, but far wilder and much shier. I rarely see them in the wild, mostly just see tracks, scats, etc.

Rodney - Glad you liked them - not sure what Puss Puss would think of these big cats... Yes I did try a few branches near the feeder - thanks for the good suggestion. But most of the birds just head straight to the feeder. Will try again when my time and patience permits...

SSG - glad you enjoyed them. Yes that 3rd 'cat picture sure looks peaceful!

Harriet - thanks for the input. I almost discarded that first photo, but he looks so cute licking his face! Will try again one of these days soon...

Lou - Thanks! I moved the feeder several times to get more sun on it - Chickadees seem to photograph best with lots of sun.
