Wildlife photography of a bobcat concealing himself and waiting for a meal with feathers to float by on a nearby creek

At the edge of the Madison River in Yellowstone National Park, a bobcat has concealed himself masterfully to lie in wait for waterfowl to float by in striking range. One of this particular cat’s favorite places to hunt, his superb stealth and a little luck here could mean a tasty duck—and survival in the incredibly harsh Winters of the region. Beautifully colored but rarely seen, the Bobcat is a charismatic feline about twice the size of a domestic cat.
