"WALKING THE LINE"

Bobcats (Adult Female & Juvenile) - 9 Photos

Southeast Calgary, Alberta, CA

 

 

This is the second set of photos from the session that took place on October 16th, 2022. (See Blog of October 17, 2022, "Love is Not Just a Human Emotion").

 

As identified on the Home Page of the website, I do not utilize any form of baiting, that includes verbal cues. I also do not trespass on private property. These photos and the ones previous were taken in a public alley way, bordered by wooden fencing & a public building with an open parking lot. The cats were kind enough to stay within those perimeters.

 

As mentioned previously, bobcats in Calgary have set up territories close to residential areas where there is a great deal of prey and protection, but close to wild areas. Another spot much further north from this one where bobcats have been regularly sighted, has an infestation of feral (domesticated) rabbits that have been freed and have multiplied. 

 

So the bobcat like the coyote has adapted to our suburban/residential surroundings, walking the line between human habitation and wild woods & meadows. I would say for the majority of the time, they are reclusive and remain unseen but sometimes an opportunity arises like the one below, where you come to realize that Nature is always around us. We just have to be paying attention, be at the right place & time and you might see wildlife taking a walk on the "not so wild side"! :)
