Finally got me a Cougar!



This afternoon I was headed down a little used road to a small beach near my home. Lo and behold a Cougar! Fortunately my camera was beside me on the seat of the truck and I was able to get a half dozen shots off before it disappeared into the bush beside the road. This was pure point and shoot with whatever settings the camera happened to be at type photography! 

In all honesty, in all the years I've lived here on the coast I probably haven't seen 10 cougars yet, they are very elusive creatures! What a treat to have actually gotten a few pictures of one!

  5. Good going Paul. Glad you had a camera with you!

    Not every day does a muscular big cat like this specimen get spotted. Suspect it was just as surprised as you were!

    These are great! I would love to get the chance to photograph a big cat in the wild. Are you sure you weren't throwing steak out your truck window?
