On the morning of February 25, 2013, while hiking down the Upper Yosemite Falls Trail, I heard something unlike anything I'd ever heard before coming from the trail below. Soon, I came upon a small group of hikers who had just witnessed this bobcat taking down a deer in the middle of the trail. No one could walk by, so I quickly pulled out my 400mm lens, and from a relatively safe distance, began photographing this rarely seen event. This incredibly beautiful cat allowed us to quietly sit and observe while it gracefully pulled the deer off the trail and allowed us to pass. Such an honor and privilege it was to see this elusive wild cat in broad daylight, and the fact that it all occurred on my 43rd birthday made it feel even more like a special gift.
