Within the eye of the Lynx by darkSoul4Life Within the eye of the Lynx by darkSoul4Life
Ever wondered how a lynx looks close up? Here you can see the beautiful face of an eurasian lynx. The lynx was less than 2m away.


Canon EOS 50D
Tamron 70-300 f/4-5.6 VC USD
Aachener Tierpark

More lynx photos are here.

Some people obviously don't understand that so the watermark is back

Hypnotising, aren't they?
It's always great when they're looking at you, you feel their power through their looks.

Wow also das nenn ich doch mal ein starkes Profilbild eines Luchses!

Du hast sein Gesicht perfekt eingefangen und man spürt so richtig, wie er einem mit seinen kräftig gelben Augen anschaut x)

Nice kitty! Really nice closeup, it lets us admire this cat and see that wild cats are still related to our household kitties: you can see hints of tabby markings in his face.

I tried different things. Getting close to them didn't worked so well but waiting for one to get close worked much better.

Was this at a zoo, a sanctuary, or just in the wild?

At a zoo of course. I wish I could see them in the wild but that is something I can't afford :/
