Wildlife photography of a bobcat leaping from the frozen bank of a frigid river to capture prey in Yellowstone National Park

A powerful bobcat leaps for prey in the icy waters of the Madison River in Yellowstone National Park. Lost to frostbite from this hunting tactic in temperatures of less than 20° below zero Fahrenheit, this cat’s tail is “bobbed” even shorter than it normally would be. Bobcats hunt by stealth but deliver a deathblow leaping pounce that can span 10 feet and often hunt from the icy edges of waterways in the Winter.
