spotted

In my free time I often try to get out and try out new trails for hikes and trail runs. However, I often find myself getting distracted and stopping. It’s usually due to light filtering through trees in an attractive way, but if i’m lucky, it’s due to some special wildlife. I saw so many cool spots on a recent run in a nearby nature preserve area that I had to go back sneak around with my DSLR. I ended up spending some quiet time with some pretty rare specimens!

The bobcat photo isn’t the greatest – I was just so excited to have caught him in action that I was barely focused on what my camera was doing. I came up right next to him as I was walking through a wash – I barely had time to react!
