18th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Wild Canada Lynx running in my direction in Northern Ontario, Canada.

For the last three winters, I was able to find and photograph this Canada Lynx who has chosen a large private property and heavily forested area as her home range. She is a special and unique animal and I'm very lucky that she is comfortable with my presence, they are typically very elusive. This was one of the rare moments of action when she ran towards a Blue Jay that had landed in the snow.
