Wild Lynx, Wrangell – St. Elias National Park, Alaska.

Wild lynx, Wrangell St. Elias National Park, Alaska.

hey Folks,

I promised my buddy Ron I’d post this. Hey Ron! 🙂

This is a wild lynx, from Wrangell St. Elias, photographed this last winter. I was pretty lucky to get this. I couldn’t believe my luck when I spotted this gorgeous cat, and hoped and prayed I’d get a photo. The lynx obliged me. I wish, of course, the image wasn’t quite so cluttered, particularly his little white beard created by the snow-covered branch in the foreground, but it’s the first photo I ever got of a lynx, so I’m happy enough, I reckon. He let me fire a few a frames, and then bounded off into the brush.

    Hey Carl,
    I’m very jealous you got to see a lynx in the wild. I have never been so fortunate myself. I’m so glad you’re able to live up there. Every day must be like a dream come true. Keep it up!

    Kinda looks like a cardboard cutout to me. The things you resort to being alone in winter for so long… I don’t think Ron will be fooled here. 😉

    Nice shot Carl – considering how much lynx like the brush. These guys certainly aren’t very helpful at modelling, eh? At least he gave you enough time for a few frames though. We just got back from a five day backpack trip in Jasper (South Boundary Trail / Cairn Pass area), where we had a wolverine encounter. We were only about 60 feet away when we surprised him in the woods – and that little guy was outta there like a gun shot. Makes a lynx look like a social butterfly. 😉

    Have fun in the Arctic man!

    Dang, you have been sitting on a wild lynx image all this time!

    Great stuff Carl! The snowy branch gets a pass on a rare animal like this.

    Beautiful shot!!! I love it i have noticed that both you & Ron can take a photo like that,and something about the eyes of the animals pulls you in closer to the photo. Like you get the light of the eyes of the subject. Makes an intense effect!!
