It sure seems like this Bobcat is checking to see if the road is safe for her kitten to cross. She stands on the road for a couple of minutes before going back into the brush and coming back out with the kitten.

How I Got The Photo:

This took place at the Sequoyah National Wildlife Refuge in Oklahoma. I was driving the auto tour road when I spotted the Bobcat. I parked and got out of my pickup, using the door to hide behind and to support my camera and lens.
