Very nice! It's near impossible to ever see one, much less three together. Where was that?

Still wondering what they thought they were doing up there. Three of them!

Two you might conjecture, but three?

I've seen bobcats frequently in trees napping during the day, so that's not unusual. Bobcats are pretty solitary though,  so this is probably a momma and this years kittens learning the ways of the world.
