Capture anything interesting on your handheld or trail camera? A nice buck, bear, coyote or anything unique? We’d love to see it. Each week, we’ll run a photo from a reader’s trail camera on the Sunday Outdoors page. Email your photo, along with date and area it was taken (township is fine) and any other details to tvenesky@timesleader.com.

The cats are on the prowl. Bobcats, that is. Pennsylvania’s only wild feline - one that is often mistaken for a mountain lion, has become prevalent throughout the state, as evident by the pair of bobcats photographed in March in Lemon Township, Wyoming County. The other photo, captured by John Demchak of Larksville, shows a hefty bobcat honing its claws on a tree. Note the stubby tails and black tufts on the ears - both good ways to tell a bobcat apart from the much larger mountain lion. Demchak used a trail camera to capture his photo, taken last October outside of Meshoppen.
