Lynx rufus
The Bobcat (Lynx rufus) is widespread across most of North America and Mexico, but is seldom seen by the casual observer. The animal show here is a captive at the Arizona Sonora Desert Museum in Tucson, Arizona. These shots were taken with a Canon EOS 10D and EF 70-200 F/2.8 L IS lens and 2X extender in April, 2003.
The next 4 images of Bobcats were also captive animals at the same location as the shots preceding, but in May, 2008. These images were taken with a canon EOS 1D Mark III and EF 300mm F/4 L IS lens.
The next 4 images of a Bobcat were also taken at the Arizona Sonora Desert Museum, in March, 2009, with the same gear as described previously. The last of the next 4 images shows the "eye spots" on the back of the ears of this species.
