Me watching bobcat...bobcat watching me!

A "Simply" Extra Video

I apologize for the occasional shakiness of the video.  The encounter was just so exciting, it made me a little shaky. 

The movie starts off with me watching the bobcat right after I encountered him sitting quietly looking out at the lake.  After a while he gets up, gives me one last dismissive look and walks off.

Although I tried to see where he went, he vanished into the woods.  So I went on and he did too.

The second part of the movie is of him watching me.

Apparently, as I continued on my way, the bobcat climbed up the berm to have a better look at this strange human in a wildcat world.  I had a feeling I was being watched so I looked around and spotted him looking down on me.

We stayed that way, looking at each other until I eventually readjusted my position, which apparently startled him enough to change his position as well into what looked like an "I'm getting ready to pounce on you now" stance.  Needless to say, at that point I stopped filming and moved along.

What an amazing experience! I'm glad I had the wherewithal to capture it on film.
