Life helps you Empathize

Empathy is when you actually feel the pain or pleasure of another person.
View your own distressful and painful experiences as a means of being able to empathize with others when they experience something similar.

The photos were captured in Gold Canyon , on the foot of the Superstition


The bobcat was trying to get away from a mountain lion that was stalking it,

explains the photographer Curt Fonger. He darted up a 40-foot saguaro, and

there he stayed for the remainder of the day.

Curt Fonger and his wife Marta are living out their golden years on

wilderness' edge in Gold Canyon . With over 40 years of photography

experience, Curt recently had a career-defining moment.

"I've never had the luxury of seeing a bobcat on top of a saguaro," he says.

"Just a beautiful creature, he was displaying himself proudly, kind of

looking around, probably trying to see if mister mountain lion was still

around... it was almost if he was posing!

Curt says the golden cat with amber eyes stared back at him, perched on top

of the cactus for hours. "He was pretty relaxed, he kind of laid on top of

the saguaro, shut his eyes, almost as if he was sleeping."

The bobcat eventually came down, but Curt and Marta are still riding high.

"It was that Kodak moment I think every photographer lives for."
