The lynx is by far one of my favourite animals. I remember in winter, when I still lived up north, we'd see lynx prints in the snow at winter on our porch XD Not so reassuring perhaps, but they never bothered us. Also, waking up one morning when it's still dark outside (well, in winter it was dark practically 24/7 with a little dusk around noon) and then suddenly seeing a lynx outside your bedroom window is terrifying and amazing at the same time. A beautiful shot, the eyes seem to draw you in. Instantly favoured.

Your photos are a cool reference to do the fur in the artworks that I do in Open Canvas.

I loved this Lynx

I love the way you capture the light in the eyes of the animals you study--from the look of the shape of the highlight in the lynx's eyes, it looks like a window is reflected--was he in an inside part of a cage?

guitarjohnny Featured By Owner Apr 3, 2005
thank you :) he's outside but they can hide in some sort of cave and i was standing behind glass in some sort of cabin that's what the reflection is ..I thought it looks nice. like a way out for him in his eyes
