The man was riding along a path and he decided to stop and take some photos. While focusing his lens, something very mysterious appeared in his shot. That ‘something’ was definitely curious and stared back at the man.

The whole episode lasted a few minutes, and the guy is fortunate the mountain lion did not attack. Instead, the cyclist remained calm, stood his ground, and the mountain lion eventually went on its merry way.
