    Finally got some shots that I have been waiting for!

    I have been waiting to get these shots forever. I love taking pictures of wildlife and I have been waiting to get a picture of one of the wild bobcats that I have seen on several occasions but never have been lucky enough to get shots of her till the other day. It was a real treat I saw her come walking down . Then she sat down and just let me take at least a 100 pictures of her before she turned around and walked back into the thick brush. I have seen a male bobcat about a mile down from where I got the pictures of her he is a beauty. But would love to get some critique on my albumn I will post a couple pictures and a link to the pictures of her and a few other animals that I also got pics of that day.
    Sidenote: This bobcat was less than 10 feet away from me and I took these out of my minivan window all critique welcome and greatly appreciated.
    Please view my album as well.

    Wow. Gorgeous! It looks like a housecat-just MUCH MUCH larger lol. I am amazed you got so close to them. Beautiful.

    "Here kitty kitty!" AWESOME!
    What kind of bird was that in your album? I could not find it in my book.

    Awesome! I'd love to see one of these.

    The birds in the album look like Black Vultures, I didn't know we get them in IL though.

    AWESOME FIND! They are EXTREMELY leery of humans in my area and I can never get images of the pair I have been chasing for 5 years.

    That's awesome!! I have been chasing a Mt.Lion around my friends property for two years and still have not got a clean shot, I've gone as far as setting up a shelter near her den and sleeping there on more than one occasion..still no luck..sneaky cats Congrats!!
