Life and Death

A bobcat, hit by a car, was lying dead beside the road. I stopped to photograph this magnificent animal, an exquisite predator (I 'doctored' the pic a little, to conceal the injury).

The fur coloration and spots make it look like a sweet little pussy cat, perfect to curl up with at home!

There's just so much beauty and perfection to admire here

Look at this adorable little tail!

This was the scene beside the road - peaceful and majestic.

And in the gravel near the dead cat, was this most beautiful Canadian tiger swallowtail (Papilo canadensis) spreading its wings - something I would not have seen had I not stopped for the deceased bobcat.
