great photo...some of the black "drawings" on his fur look like faces. The cameras probably take a lot of pics of other animals, too.
I don't understand why people are dissing the photographer because he wasn't standing there in a position to be killed by a wild animal. This picture is amazing and I cant imagine it is that easy or cheap to be able to set one of these up properly. Would have taken a great deal of time to get. Very cool.
As mysterious and solitary as such cats are, can one simply take a photo without an automatic camera? I am grateful to the photographer for capuring such an amazing image, it is truly lovely.
I love photos of any cats big or small but I would rather it be a hand held camera or tri pod as this makes it a more personal photo
A beautiful creature to be sure, although I would have more impressed if the shot was taken by a human who put in the time, instead of a machine,
I do have a soft spot for cats, big and small.
That particular camera must have been strategically positioned to have captured this brilliant image.
Kudos to you, Steve Winter.
@David Moser Yes, or may be I would have appreciated the picture more had not I read the photographer's comment. (btw we still call him photographer or trap cam retriever?)
@Myra Linara the camera WAS strategically put there, but seeing as it has a motion sensor, and flash, the "photographer "really didnt have to do that much
