Hello again blog readers-
Just one more quick blog today because I’ve been wracking my brain trying to figure this picture out. Let’s me give you some back story:
I live in Spring Hill, Kansas. It’s a small town, with no stop lights, and about 3,000 people. Don’t let that “small town” story fool you though – I’m from the Bay Area, worked in Oakland, San Leandro, Concord, Fremont and lived in the same areas for most of my life. But the last decade I’ve spent in a little town and loving it.
I’ve gotten used to the feel and the quietness. I live at the end of a road – which backs up to some “wilderness” and a pond. I have a couple of dogs that I like to spend time with out there and we can hear the coyotes at night.
Finally, I keep a couple of “game” cameras set up in my yard, firstly for security so I can see who’s coming and going, but also to see what kind of animals might be sniffing around. Two nights ago, my camera caught this picture at 3:54am, you can click on it to get a bigger image:
It only takes a picture when it detects movement. And if you look in the center, almost all the way to the bottom of the picture, you’ll see a creature walking up my driveway from the street. That’s my neighbor’s house that you see in the background…the wilderness is behind the camera.
Do you see it? What is that? It’s not a house cat. NO WAY. It’s almost as big as the entire width of the sidewalk. It’s not a dog, it definitely looks “feline”. It’s got to be a bobcat, right?
I spend a lot of time outside and in the wild, and rarely have a seen one of these guys roaming the countryside. They are nocturnal, and fierce carnivores known to take down prey larger than them. So it gets me thinking, what else is out there? I’ll post more pics as I get them, I’m hoping to ge a shot of the “Great North Western Spring Hill Sasquatch” some day. If I get that, I’ll let you know!
