“Standing on my back patio, I heard what sounded like a cat below my Carmel Valley home Saturday evening,” Thiele writes. “With my camera, whistle, and phone, I headed to San Clemente Creek and listened. The sounds were feline, and a moment later, these two popped into view about 30-40 yards away. While mountain lions often appear on my wildlife cameras, seeing them in person is a remarkable and humbling experience!” Photographed with a Canon 5DMarkIV 100-400 lens.

Captured beautifully, Cheryl! Wary, but curious! Loved your description, too. I shared your photo (with your description) to a Facebook Group about our state that I contribute to, "California Tracker". Your photo is very popular! Thank-you, Cheryl! (I invite you to join our FB Group, and continue to share!)
