Yesterday I went out to the Desert Foothills Library in Cave Creek. 
When I got out of my car there was a bobcat walking along the sidewalk right in front of me.
I followed him around to the patio and watched him catch a snake and have his breakfast.
This is the sequence of photos with cropped and enlarged versions in Set II.

Set I.

Set II.

I posted a couple of these on FB last night and everybody loved them so much I thought I share here so people can see them better. It was an amazing thing to watch even with the snake. Just like Indiana Jones


  1. Oh my gosh Rita, these pictures are awesome! is it common to see bobcats around there? I know it's a bit wilder up in that area, but still, it seems awfully close to "civilization" lol. I'm glad you had the chance to see it and photograph it. Even WITH snakes :-D

    1. Lisa, I've never seen one before but I hear of them out there. I live more in town. I entered two of the photos in a contest. Wish me luck! lol
