This is the 2nd Bobcat we saw that evening at Santa Clara Ranch in Texas.  He followed the first one which I posted earlier and then about a half an hour later came in for a drink.  The 500F4 was too close for the whole cat so I took a shot focusing on the head and reflection.  I find the ears on this species amazing! This is full frame, taken in low light right about sunset.  .

Beautiful image. Good choice on how to frame your comp, the cat's reflection and sunset color in the water add well to this image.
