Bobcat Mother and Child

This morning the rabbit that is wintering in the wood shed was acting up. Soon, it became clear why.  I've been seeing a bobcat in the area lately.  Today bobcat mom and child spent about half an hour trying to flush out the rabbit from the wood shed, without success.  However, it was a great photo opportunity.  Enjoy.
Bobcat mom leads the way. The child has a distinctive fur pattern, but the mom is a more uniform brown.
