Description

One of the highlights of my trip to Yellowstone National Park was watching this bobcat hunt. We stayed with the cat for over 3 hours while he stalked solitary ducks that came close to the river edge. He used boulders as camouflage and snow banks as covers before eventually positioning himself on a snow bank directly above an unsuspecting mallard. Once he attained that vantage point, he pounced from above and the struggling mallard soon succumbed to the attack. Canon 1dxmkii, EF 600mm f/4ii+ 2xtc iii at 1200 mm, 1/400 sec at f/9.0 ISO 1600, spot metering on an Induro tripod.
