Backyard Bobcat

I've had the occasional bobcat visit my backyard before, but never a leisurely 20 minute stay, complete with the cat watching me as I took multiple photos from a safe vantage point behind a window.

I first sighted her (I think it was a her) as a quick vertical blur in my peripheral vision, followed by a flurry of feathers. She had leaped seven feet to snag a dove sitting at the top of a concrete wall. She carried the bird to an alcove and had a quick lunch, followed by a leisurely siesta on the backyard bricks. Then it was back to the hunt, poised on the top of the wall, watching the bird action until she dropped down on the other side to continue her journey. (Continue for more pics.)
