This beauty of a bobcat, Lynx rufus, hunting along the Madison River, Yellowstone National Park. WY, was photographed by Don Quintana, who writes:
We spent 3 days along the Madison River last winter with this beautiful female Bobcat as she went about hunting, napping, bathing and all those things that Bobcats do. It was a magical experience and one I won’t soon forget. In this photo she is moving down the hill across the river from us searching for rodents to eat.
