The bobcat (Lynx rufus) is a North American mammal of the cat family Felidae, appearing during the Irvingtonian stage of around 1.8 million years ago (AEO). With 12 recognized subspecies, it ranges from southern Canada to northern Mexico, including most of the continental United States. The bobcat is an adaptable predator that inhabits wooded areas, as well as semidesert, urban edge, forest edges, and swampland environments. (From Wikipedia)

A very fine animal and a very good capture. It does not really matter that this is in a zoo, it is still a good picture and all details are exposed well. Pleasant colours!

Hi Eleu, What a capture....wild cat is dangerous. They jump fast and run fast. Lovely composition with natural colours. Perfect focus with great details. Thank for sharing

Good morning, Eleu,
There is a lot of bobcats in the Russian forests too. Superb capture, very nice and elegant cat. The tufts is a distinguishing feature of this animal.

Wow, he's certainly giving you the eyes and lucky you to have captured this in the wild, probably native to North America only and bigger than the normal domesticated cats. He's got a kind of "come closer if you dare" expression! and almost camouflaged there! Such is a Wilde Nature, great captured, Congrats

Interesting portrait of this bobcat, which seems a large domestic cat. Good capture.
