Congratulations to Trey Neal for winning Feature Thread of the Week with 12 votes - View Previous Winners


Finally got out to do some real shooting today. Not much to see but what I did see, I liked!

The last light was fast approaching when I came across this young bobcat prowling around a large body of water. It played a little hide and seek hoping I would give up and move on but I waited. After about 10 minutes of well hidden waiting (see the first shot), the bobcat decided it was time to make a move. Seeing that I didn't appear to be a threat, the bobcat continued on its way down the water's edge, stopping occasionally to see if I'd give up. Spent almost an hour following, photographing and waiting. It is just so cool to see bobcats in the wild.

All shot with the Nikon D810, 800mm f/5.6 Spot-metered

This bobcat was well camouflaged when I spotted him.

That lens shows some fantastic detail. And you were certainly rewarded with some great images of an allusive cat. #4 is my choice.

Thanks Don.

I love this lens. Very close race for sharpness between the 200 f/2, the 400 f/2.8 and this one. Paired with the D810 and it is tough to beat.

Terrific experience for you Trey. I find many times that my most cherished images are the result of a patient encounter that pays off in the end.
Really cool sequence of images here, very well captured and processed. Excellent work and a real pleasure to view.

Great shots of a seldom seen cat. I always enjoy your whitetail shots too.

Beautiful set. Number two for me, I like the surrounding dead grass and the wariness of the cat.

Thanks! I didn't get a chance to get out and shoot whitetails this year. It'll be on my list next year though!

Thanks Heron. I tend to like the animalscape too. I used to be keen on getting that tight portrait shot but then I sort of found that didn't put me in the animal's environment enough so I widened my perspective. Glad you liked it.

Great shots. It's amazing how they can get taxidermy to look like they are really alive. Just amazing.....

(Good stuff Trey )

Excellent set Trey. Can you backoff on the sharpening a touch? I love all the compositions
