Awesome photos of a lynx and her kitten. Even the mother passes through that fence with ease.

What gorgeous creatures they are!

Like any cat, if the head passes, the rest does too.

...and you're right, they are beautiful.

And like any cat the mom stares at you as the kittens pass as if to say "This is MY path. You can wait your damn turn"
I've seen half a dozen over the years I lived up here. Even named my first ISP "Qlynx" as I wanted a name that fit in the boonies here. Keep renewing that domain just for... I dunno - senti-mental-ity?

I've seen a few around here but mostly at night while driving on country roads.
Those eyes are incredibly reflective.

I used to see some when I lived up north. They are a very regal creature. Kept the rabbit and vole population in check too.

I've spent a lot of time in the bush, mostly around Timmins, and I've seen lynx only a very few times. I've never seen more than one at a time.
