Bobcat (Felis rufus)
Location: Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum, near Tucson, Arizona, USA

Yesterday I posted a photo of a female Bobcat.   These photos, taken during the same visit to the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum, show the same individual with her mate.  In the first photo here, the female has begun to groom, while her mate watches.  In the second photo, taken a short time later, the male begins to groom, too -- with a little help from his mate.

Beautiful fur these two have, the patterns and colours are lovely.

Hi Craig - Yes, their fur looks really lush. I stood watching (and photographing) these "kitties" for quite a long time.

Great pictures. I know that was probably exciting to watch and then capture with the camera.

Hi 2Sweet - Thanks. Yes, it was a memorable day.

Like these photos a lot....I think we humans need to do more grooming together...great for bonding!

Hi Danny - I think your comment is exactly right! Thank you.

They are beautiful animals and not the least bit bothered by viewers - made for some great photos!!

Hi Kathy - It's true: They seemed very unconcerned that they were being observed (albeit at a little distance) by people.
