    Mountain lion

    Hesitant to post this but will anyway...I have a lens hood that I made for my camera trap housing and normally works pretty well to keep rain and snow off the filter....This cat came along two nights ago while we were getting high wind and sideways rain got the filter wet....Mixed feelings because of the poor pictures but encouraged because it will probably be back another time.

    I guess you can think of it as looking through a wet window during a storm.. Two off camera flashes lit it up.

    Thanks Fat, It's the same general area but a different set...In that closest one, I think his face was near a foot from the lens. I used a wide angle Canon 10-22 lens and it was set at 11mm.The first picture he was three feet from the lens.

    I often wonder just how many we have here in IL, and will their population grow? One or two sightings a year right now. Gary

    That is amazing.
    It would seem we are now up a famous tributary without any means of locomotion.

    Very elusive cats, well done in getting a pic.
