Wild Capture From California

Lee Pauser captured this incredible photo of a bobcat resting on a Barn Owl nest box in California. The four owlets that were inside were totally unharmed thanks to the box’s internal partition and other important safety features, such as having an appropriately-sized entry hole. For good measure, Lee also added 5 feet of metal sheathing to the post after seeing this unexpected visitor.
