Caught on Camera

By Tom Venesky - [email protected]

Something spooked the bobcat in these trail camera photos that is shot up a tree to avoid the danger. Martin Husovich captured the images of the feline, which appears to have an unusually long tail for a bobcat but the pointed ears typical of the species.

Note the time stamp on the first image as the bobcat is on the ground, bracing itself. Just one second later the feline is already several feet up the tree in the next photo, making a quick escape.

Capture anything interesting on your hand-held or trail camera? A nice buck, bear, coyote or any other wildlife? We’d love to see it. Each week, we’ll run photos 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 [email protected]
