Today’s Photo Of The Day is “Bobcat Blessed” by Susan Winfree. Location: Livermore, California.
“A close encounter with a bobcat as it was leaving a gully in the Livermore Open Space area,” explains Winfree. “It was my first day out with the new Canon 80D and 70-200mm lens. I went for a hike and saw this little darling. I kept as much distance as possible above it until it started coming out of the gully. I was low to the ground and as still as possible as not to frighten it and had to lean back slowly to get focus and take a shot as soon as there was eye contact. Then it turned away and kept on going.”
Photo of the Day is chosen from various OP galleries, including Assignments, Galleries and the OP Contests. Assignments have weekly winners that are featured on the OP website homepage, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. To get your photos in the running, all you have to do is submit them.
