Awesome work Kat. Your photos are a treasure.
I've been hiking the southern end of the Arizona Trail for years, have seen four lions, and recently there has been a lot of jaguar activity here. I'm not exactly terrified but I have stayed away from the Santa Rita section of the trail, as there has been over ten separate groups of photos taken by game and fish with their game cams there in the first six months of 2013. There is also jaguar activity in the mountains east of us on the New Mexico/Arizona border, as documented by a local rancher here named Glen Warner in his book "Eyes of Fire". The jaguar is a completely different type of cat, they do not fear man and are legendary in Mexico for their boldness. I hike alone a lot so I'm extremely vigilant (for this reason and others), and it pays to be constantly analyzing track and watching the wind direction. The birds will go silent if there is a predator around also. I used to ride horses all the time and they always told me when a big cat was around and I felt safer with them, but they have passed away and I'm afoot now.
We have finally replaced our old game camera with a new one, and have a functioning horse trough in our pasture where we set the camera up and are hoping to some day get a photo of a jaguar or mountain lion. We have already gotten photos of bobcat, javelina, coyotes, deer and an occasional kit fox, and of course lots of jackrabbits.
Your pics are really cool. Such a variety of wildlife near your home is wonderful and shows a very healthy ecosystem.
