This photo was taken by Bob Meyer in North Scottsdale in his backyard pool. He had very little time to take it so this was the best shot he could get, but what a cute shot indeed.
The Bobcat is believed to have evolved from the Euroasian lynx, which crossed into North America by way of the Bering land bridge.
Bobcats are good hunters and sought after for their fur. The bobcat is crepuscular (generally most active at twilight and dawn). Each night bobcats tend to move between 2 and 7 miles along their habitual route.
In Native American mythology, the bobcat is tied with the coyote in a theme of duality and there are varying interpretations. Apparently the Mohave believed that dreaming habitually about beings or objects would provide characteristics as supernatural powers. Dreaming of two deities, cougar and lynx, they thought would grant them the superior hunting skills of other tribes.
And today is Sunday so that means new travel photos on Viva la Voyage. Today's photos show the action in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
