15th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Curious Bob

My wife and I went Birding at Loxahatchee Park in Boca Raton FL, beside the entrance to the park is a farmers market, we turned in to buy some fruit, when I saw something from the corner of my eye that DID NOT belong, the white on the cats ears, after almost hitting a telephone pole, I raced in front of the cat, as it strolled almost cloaked behind the vegetation of an embankment covered with weeds, brush and plants. I yelled at my wife to grab her camera and quietly get out of the car, she was petrified because she did not know what was happening! Then suddenly from behind some bushes, this beautiful female Florida Bob Cat stepped out, this is one of many great shots we got that morning, a Florida Bob Cat, next to a "pick'em yourself" farmers market..jeeez!
