Eyes closed

Leaving work today we caught a glimpse of this mammal disappearing into the shrubs:

The Bobcat stopped briefly and closed its eyes for a few moments.  We wondered if it was sleepy, or just waiting for us to leave so it could continue with its evening activities?

No matter what was behind this behavior, in the resulting picture I was struck by the amazing stripes across the different parts of its face (especially to either side of the nose, at the base of the whiskers).
