Art & Culture
I love Tucson and the beautiful desert that surrounds it. I have been a professional musician since 1975 and Realtor with Long Realty with my harpist wife for the last four years. My favorite subjects to photograph are the bobcat kittens that show up over the years. It seems the bobcat mothers will bring their kittens to hang out in our trees and on top of our roof. She will leave them safe from coyotes and other predators while going off to hunt. Often she will return with a rabbit for the family to take turns on. I have had several encounters where she drops down and nurses visible from our home windows.
