Neighborhood Wildlife

This lovely creature was hanging around our neighborhood 2 weeks ago. If we can't get out into nature like we used to, we might as well take advantage of them coming to us.

Bonus shot from my back yard, taken 2 days before the cat photos. Our dog weighs all of 9 pounds, so we have to keep an eye out for predators.

    My wife and I have completely different reactions to the news of wildlife nearby. I run to grab the camera and telephoto lens, and she wonders what kind of crazy person she married.

    Oh how lucky to catch them! Is this a Mountain Lion?

    Yes, it's a mountain lion. We live right at the base of the foothills, so they frequently show up on people's security cams during the night, but this was the rare occasion of one hanging out in a neighborhood tree most of the day. This is the only time I've seen a lion firsthand in the neighborhood.
