A Photographer Captured Three Bobcats during a drone operation
The bobcat is a medium-sized cat native to North America. It is also known as the red lynx, Lynx rufus , and they are inhabiting wooded areas, semi-desert, urban edge, forest edge, and swampland environments. Therefore they are hard to capture. Wildlife photography tries to reach them with important aspects like good timing and the foresight to catch up. However, Mike Mayou had found these bobcats when his drone was flying on the St. Louis River. There were three bobcats, and he could be able to catch their images from different angles. He was wondered to discover these three bobcats who were traveling together during his drone investigation.
He has described his attempt in this way. “These cats were very comfortable being up close and personal with the camera,” he said.
“It’s quite rare for humans to see bobcats in the wild, but the drone allowed me to interact with these animals in a unique way.” He spent a few minutes near them and then left so as to not disturb them any further.
He also said that he got close to these bobcats while this process lasted for just a few minutes, and also he’s keeping the exact location as a secret to prevent the Bobcats from getting swarmed by photographers.
“As we all know, drones can potentially scare animals, especially if the drones are larger in size and get close to the creatures,” Mike said. “After looking into the ethics of drone photography around wildlife, I realized I may have gotten too close to the bobcats for comfort, and looking back, I would not have gotten as close as I did. If the behavior of the animal changes, the drone is too close.” Mike explained.
You can reach three bobcats through these fantastic capturing’s, and you can imagine how beautiful their lifestyle is and more and more about them through the shared video.
