Like most wildlife, the coat on bobcats looks the best in winter or spring . In the summer they can look quite mangy even if they remain uneffected by the disease itself. A snowy background also isolates the animal better.

 

 

TIMES

 

As is the case with most wildlife, bobcats are most active in early morning or late afternoon. The bobcat pictured above jumped out of a tree and crossed in front of our snow coach. We followed him on foot for about 1/2 mile and he again crossed the road in front of us. The above shot was taken at a focal length of 200mm on a full frame camera. Bobcats are not at all common sightings in Yellowstone.
