That stunning sunset shot over Green Valley Park lake or the million dollar view from Forest Road 300 — we have all captured moments fit print. Well, we want you to share them. So we’re launching a new guest photography feature. At least once a month, we’ll select one reader photo for print. We’ll post all other submittals on both the Payson Roundup’s Facebook page and our Web site. So please send your favorite shots of Rim Country to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include your name and contact information.
Our first offering comes from Scott Crabdree, who caught this image of a green-eyed bobcat while hunting elk last September near the Girl Scout camp in Whispering Pines. Scott had already bagged a 5-by-5 elk and so switched to his camera as his son continued to hunt. He heard a rustle in the trees and looked to his left. A bobcat padded quietly into a small clearing, took a look at at Scott, sniffed the air and meandered back into the woods. Crabdree had the presence of mind to focus and shoot the bobcat, capturing this distinctive image.
