The Owl and the Bobcat Above Los Angeles

A composite of only two images: A California bobcat (Lynx Rufus) sneaks stealthily underneath a watchful Western Screech-Owl (Megascops kennicottii) above the bustling human metropolis by Santa Monica Bay. This bobcat and owl thrive along the backyards of million dollar mansions and busy hiking trails.
