Description

This bobcat was far away in a field, and I had no possibility of getting closer. in addition, the air conditions in Point Reyes can often create a lot of haze, even when subjects are close-by. Going through my pictures in post, it struck me that the way in which the grass obstructs our view highlights how these animals are associated with stealth, elusiveness, and mystery. The contrast between the orange and the green also made me think William Blake's poem "Tyger Tyger, burning bright / In the forests of the night."
