How nice to see a new photo from you. Two very beautiful photos of a Bobcat. Excellent sharpness, details and beautiful colours. Your garden wall is always a nice BG.
And what a heath! That's more than 41 degrees Celcius. Here in Holland it's cool and rainy for weeks now. A very wet Summer.

Dear friend, it's good to hear from you again!
Wow, I see are a extreme heat in Arizona! 106F wow! This is a fine specimen of wild cat, I am amazed that get this into your backyard! ... Here are some wildcats like this, but ours are not usually so confident and only can see ath nights when are stealing some chickens or other poultry!
Nice shot, very eloquent!... Whit these heat climate, surely this cat wish save much energy!
PD: I like a lot the cat's pose in teh WS! Congratualtions!

Amazing crisp composition of this Bobcat. Our woodlands also have a healthy population of this wildcat ... but they are rarely seen near to civilization - let alone having a siesta on one's masonry.
Perfect timing in more ways than one!

What a wonderful sight to see from your own patio. I would be thrilled just to see one in the wild, let alone close up and personal like this little beauty.
You captured this particular cat in a fine pose, as it yawns during siesta time. Excellent detail color and white balance achieved. Truly an attractive animal from your area of Arizona. Well done!!

Tu as eu beaucoup de chance de pouvoir photographier cet animal sauvage si près des habitations !!!
La profondeur de champ n'est pas excellente mais le sujet est tout de même relativement bien valorisé, à l'instant décisif, dans une très belle et originale attitude.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

A bobcat in your backyard!! WoW
I would give anything to have one coming into ours but the nearest of the European species in Sweden is about 200 miles away and they are very shy and hard to find.
So you can imagine my amazement at this. Not only that but he looks quite relaxed, perhaps because of the heat, and you caught him from a fine POV with excellent sharpness and colours with the white wall making a good contrasting BG.
Thanks for sharing this,

Lovely composition in good contrast.
