We had a wonderful Monday morning with @blueoceanwhalewatch in the Monterey Bay - thank you so much for this awesome, educational trip 😊 - We saw a lot of humpback whales and californian sea lions. The most impressed i was by the fact that sea lions and humpback whales form hunting coalition. It was beautiful to see them hunt together the anchovies and sometimes it looked as if the sea would boil πŸ‹ - Great experience 😊

Besides the already sighted animals, day 3 brought us again some new species - Some of them we couldn't capture with our cameras (Birds of prey mainly), but some were very kind to be photographed by us πŸ˜„:
.
1. North american river otter (Lutra canadensis)
2. Striped skunk (Mephitis mephitis)
3. Sonoma Chipmunk (Tamias sonomae)
.
Unfortunately we have to leave this beautiful place today and we will head down south to the Monterey bay and we hope to watch some marin mammals.

2nd day in Point Reyes National Shore: We are still impressed by the wildlife.Unfortunately it was a Bobcat "free" day 😿, but nevertheless we enjoyed nature and encounters with other wildlife like: .
1. Coyote (Canis latrans)
2. American badger (Taxidea taxus)
3. Great horned owl (Bubo virginuanus)
.
We still enjoyed the great wildlife this park offers.

Point Reyes National Seashore: We started early this morning for our first tour in Point Reyes and it was just amazing - The landscape is quite versatile and it is a perfect place for nature and wildlife lovers. I didn't expect that crazy amount of great wildlife encounter in just one day. Here are just some of it: .
1. Turkey vulture (Cathartes aura)
2. Barn owl (Tyto alba)
3. Osprey with catch (Pandion haliaetus)
4. Tule elks (Cervus canadensis nannodes)
5. Bobcat 😻🐾 (Lynx rufus)
.
We are happy to be here 😊

We stayed in San Francisco until wednesday and made our last hike into Bobcat territory early in the morning. Unfortunately it was quite crowded this morning and we weren't successful. Nevertheless it was a great hike again and we saw a lot of mule deers. In the afternoon we drove up north to the Point Reyes National Seashore.

What an awesome day 😸 - This morning i tried it again and went just a little bit earlier into Bobcat habitat to be the first one on this hiking trail. At first, a coyote crossed my way, but i wasn't really prepared and hat to configure first my camera for the actual situation. Around twenty minutes later i saw the shape of another animal further down the road. I thought that it is another coyote but i used my binoculars to check and then my heart began to beat faster - wow, really a bobcat ? I carefully walked down the trail and followed the cat. I was so exccited. As i get closer i could observe this adorable little wild cat. I was so moved 😸. A huge thank you goes to @pumapix - Without his knowledge and information this encounter and capture wouldn't be possible: Thank you Sebastian 😸 ! Don't forget to follow his awesome ig account and check his fantastic posts !

We are finally back in California. After our visit in 2015 we always wanted to come back sooner, but sometimes it just needs time...
We arrived sunday afternoon in San Francisco and on monday morning we already did a first "wildlife hike" mainly trying to see a Bobcat. Unfortunately we didn't see one, but we already saw some other animals and a beautiful scenery.
.
1. California quail
2. Rabbit (sorry couldn't find out which one πŸ˜‰)
3. Beautiful Landscape 😊 .

Another portrait of Bawa, a wild cheetah and son of the famous cheetah mother Malaika who jumped on the roof of our jeep in the magical Masai Mara.

There was a cute little beech marten (Martes foina) passing by my dslr camera trap. In my backcountry there are two species of martens (Martes) quite common: The pine marten and the beech marten. While the pine marten is almost strictly limited to forests the beech marten can live in very different areas: from urban habitats to forests.
