That is an awsome looking cat,very nice pics as well.
Around here the variety looks more like a Fawnish-to-greyish tabby type pattern and coloring like the one pictured..
Last year we saw our first Lynx, (I'm guessing a canadian Lynx cause it didn't look like a Bobcat type) cool looking cat.
Everyone around is saying they haven't many squirrels this year, I can say for certainty that it's true (my hickory nuts are still on the ground). We have serious a Fishercat population that seem to be decimating the bushy tailed rats.
