Bobcat located in Yellowstone National Park. I got lucky enough to get some good shots of this guy/gal, there was about 20 photographers waiting for it to come around the bend near the river so I guessed that he may come back towards the area where I had set up and was lucky enough that it came my way. As I was waiting and scanning the area I first saw him/her on a rock in the river, it then got into the river and swam downstream until it got about even with me, then it came to shore near were I was. After reaching shore it sat and dried itself off for quite awhile then as it walked away this was one of the shots as it walked by. I spent about 10 minutes watching and photographing him/her. Pretty incredible experience.
