This is a great spotting! When we were in Alaska, on a tour bus, I saw one chasing a rabbit. The driver said they are very rarely seen!

I was in that area about a week ago, didn't see anything like that, "only" a moth :)
Amazing encounter...

Wow this is fantastic! In my country (Switzerland) there are only about 250 wild lynxes... people will camp out for days to photograph one!

This was in the wild.. and not far from the Czech Republic.. I only got 2 shots before it took off!!

Christiane was this in the wild? The Eurasian lynx was exterminated in Germany in the 19th century. Small populations have been reintroduced, and some animals have migrated from the nearby Czech Republic. A very special sighting!
