Young Bobcat photographed by coastal photographer Craig Tooley

Craig Tooley saw this young Bobcat in a stand-off with a Buck. The Bobcat seemed to be calling the Buck's bluff and that's the moment Craig captured this photograph. But the Bobcat's bravado was in vain. All it took was one step forward by the Buck and the Bobcat thought better of the situation. It quickly disappeared into the brush. Sometimes retreat is the best option!

Craig has five other photos posted of this Bobcat on his web site. Here is the link: http://ruffimage.smugmug.com/Nature/bobcat/20081541_L39Gkt#1583984126_2H4nQFD
