[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I have to admit, the highlight of my trip. The moment i spotted this one hitchhiking next to the road with his 2 females my heart rate went up.When they slowly walked away from the road I was thinking wow that was awesome. Then when the male lagged behind, looked back and gave me the opportunity to stop the car and make a few pictures ... it was hard to hold the camera still due to adrenaline...know that feeling?

Hi Jeroen,
Ja dat gevoel kan ik me voorstellen. Mooie scherpe foto in prachtige schutkleuren.

Hi, Jeroen. Nice capture of this bobcat in its natural habitat striking a nice pose. Natural colors and I must admit this is a very elusive animal and you are fortunate to take this portrait. Thanks for sharing.

Hello Jeroens
This must have been a very special moment capturing a Bobcat in the wild. I know they are very timid. I've seen them in the wild but had no camera. Excellent shot!

Hello Jeroen,
I like such natural habitat photographs. Very well captured this Cat in its beautiful natural habitat. Looks light was harsh on its face.....nice POV with excellent tone.
Thanks for sharing,

Thanks for your comment on my previous post. Yes, I also don't like 'BLACK BORDER', but I can't change now. When I'll do Photoshop again, will change. Now I'm posting from my Cell phone.

Hi Jeroen,
Nice shot of a bobcat. Interesting light and colours.
Very good details and focus. Sure pleasant encounter.
Regards Jiri.

Hello Jeroen, Congratulations on a fantastic image!!
I have to admit this would be a dream shot for me. To be able to photograph a bobcat in the wild in such a wonderful pose is awesome. I love the eye contact and sharp focus. The composition is perfect and we get a great look at it's entire body. I see you must have taken the shot in either early morning or late evening when the light was very warm.
Hope you don't mind, but I would like to try and adjust the white balance a little in a WS.

Top,top Jeroen,pracht opname en voorbeeld van mimicry,wat meestal in de insektenwereld voorkomt.Gewoon prachtig.

Thanks for sharing.
