Canadian Lynx, Yukon Territory

This Month in Photo of the Day: Animal Pictures

A Canadian lynx is seen in the Ogilvie Mountains (Yukon Territory, Canada) last winter. I followed fresh wolf tracks, north of Tombstone, before I found this lynx enjoying the sunset. I spent three hours with the feline, watching him resting, stretching, and hunting snowshoe hares in the snow.
