Camera Captures a Human Instead of Photographic Bobcats!

Wildlife photographers have been known for their patience and resilience.  This is why when conservation photographer Jeff Wirthworth set up his camera to capture pictures of bobcats on a fallen tree near his home, he did not expect a man, to be posing on it instead of the bobcats that he intended to capture.

Jeff had set up his camera with motion sensors and an off-camera flash to lighten up the place better and he was hoping to find some pictures of numerous bobcats that were roaming around in the area.

So when he went home to check his pictures one day he was taking a bath when he discovered there was a man posing in front of his camera at some point. Jeff was of course appreciative of the fact that this man did not steal or damage his equipment and that is why in good humor he uploaded the photo on Reddit, and it received more than 150,000 upvotes.

He even found the man who was posing in front of his camera and internet users tanked Ben Sizemore for the great pictures. Ben did not seem camera shy at all!

And to uncover the mystery, yes, Jeff was also able to take pictures of bobcats hanging around in the area afterward. Scroll down to see the Bobcats pictures and of course Ben’s too.
