Bobcat Stretch - Lynx rufus
Taken during the photo trip led by Howard Ignatius (Thanks Howard). The light was fading, so I put the ISO at 800 and also +2/3 EV. The location, shorter ear tufts and 3-4 black bars on the tail and more brownish than gray called out bobcat! Thanks to all of you for your help. plus this comparison of a Lynx and Bobcat: www.saskschools.ca/~gregory/animals/bobc_lynx.html . Thanks also to Marc, Linda, Mike and all for your ID comments. Much appreciated. It was just an exciting photo to be able to capture.
