Just a few minutes ago I identified the ??? in the picture from a few nights ago.
On the porch, while enjoying the cool weather after the tropical storm passed, I spotted it. It is a rare and elusive Ebony Barn Panther. Yep, a black saber-toothed alley cattus out checking my now un-baited traps. Black as coal I watched him slink across the yard. I get pictures of cats somewhat regularly, but always there’s a head, tail, ear or something that is recognizable, just not this time. So the mystery is solved.
