Meet Bob and Cat

Several Steller’s Jays screaming their most aggressive intruder calls alerted me to these two young bobcats hanging about in the trees around my house. Despite the storm of jays and my rapidly firing camera shutter, their patterns, tufted ears, clear eyes, calm demeanor, and poise led me to fall in love.
