Bobcat in Arbor Greene, New Tampa
We were coming home from my Son's soccer game yesterday and as we were driving through the community I happened to see this Florida Bobcat out of the corner of my eye. At first I thought it was a Florida Panther, which would have been a very rare citing, but after a little internet research, I think its tail is too short for a Florida Panther.
Luckily I had my camera with me, I only wish I had a little better zoom lens. This shot is a little grainy because I had to enlarge it a bit.
This was only about 100 yards from the Arbor Greene Clubhouse and after I took the picture the cat just sat under the bushes, totally ignoring the five or six cars that had now stopped in the street to check him out. I actually drove off before he decided to move on.
