Florida Bobcat alongside Black Point Wildlife Drive

Birding was not good on a very windy day at Merritt Island NWR. I decided to head for the exit on Black Point Wildlife Drive and start my drive home. Movement to the left in the Salt Marsh caught my eye and I saw this Florida Bobcat walking slowly through the tall grass. She finally emerged into a clearing of shorter vegetation and I was lucky enough to take a few photographs. This Bobcat is the first one I have ever seen in the wild.

The Florida bobcat is a distinct subspecies, of the Cat, which there are 12 subspecies in North America. Bobcats are entirely carnivorous, preying upon small animals such as rabbits, rodents, and birds and much less frequently on large animals such as white-tailed deer.

I really like her ears.
