Autumn Lynx by Enalla Autumn Lynx by Enalla
Cute Eurasian Lynx in Helsinki Zoo. =)

I happened to see one of the caretakers in the zoo coming to see the lynx.
He was talking fondly to the lynx for quite a while, and the lynx was obviously very pleased to see him.
The lynx was "talking" back to him and was pushing his head against the fence affectionately.
So behaving just like a domestic cat. :lol: That was funny to see.

:camera: Nikon D3100 + Tamron 70-300mm F/4-5.6



Any kind of feedback is greatly appreciated! :iconflowerheartplz:

This is a gorgeous photograph! I love the focus on the lynx and the blur of part of the foreground and the background. It gives the piece a wild atmosphere (despite the lynx being calm :) )

Oh, you're so lucky! I don't remember seeing a lynx in my life, and they are so beautiful! And from what I've seen on the photos they really behave like cute housecats very often ^^
This one again has lighter fur than they usually have, but it looks so pretty. I really like the colours on the background. They are very lively so the animal stands out more. Lovely! :love:

I agree they're very beautiful! I saw a lynx for the first time in my life in this zoo and I'm very happy I did. =) I've always wanted to see one. The lynx population is very strong in Finland but still I've never managed to see a wild one.
You know lynxes change to a almost white coat for winter time.
This one has already started to change to winter coat, that's why it's so light. =)
Thank you! :aww:

I know that they change coats, but I rarely see them so light on the photos and also it's only November. Maybe this one is quicker or maybe in Finland they start sooner than in Poland. Yesterday I've seen photos of some Polish ones playing in snow and they were either all orange or with orange spots.
But I like your, looks more similar to snow leopard ^^

You're probably right in that they start to change sooner here, since the weather get colder here sooner. =)
