Florida (1/13)

I spent some time with family and friends in Florida in January.  Went to one of my favorite locations, Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge, for a few days with my buds to photograph.  In the past, I have seen glimpses or the rear end of a Bobcat running away.  This trip things were different.  We were on the tour road at sunrise one morning and stopped to chat with some new friends.  They mentioned that they had just seen a Bobcat cross onto an island.  As a group we waited, in hopes that the Bobcat would exit the island and provide a photo opportunity.  Well, lo and behold, after about two hours, he decided to walk off the island into the water and cross the tour road.  The eye contact and reflection in the soft light was special.  Good times!
