This experience happened almost exactly one year ago, and certainly was the photographic highlight for the year. Nothing like having a cooperative wild lynx posing patiently to get one excited about wildlife photography.

You must have been so thrilled at this encounter, Pete, I would have been! Such a laid back beauty, and look at those wonderful ear tufts!

Awesome capture! I love the stare. My only lynx sighting was a pair crossing the road ahead of me--not enough time to even grab my phone for a snapshot. I'm jealous!

Beautiful animal and you made the best of the opportunity. I'm always hoping to spot them but rarely do.
