Hi Andrea

Is this guy doing what they call for someone sneaking softly unto someone else as being 'cat-foot'? Very interesting 'action' shot.

I like the composition and POV. I just cannot make up my mind about the cropping though. Maybe a little more of the body, thus showing the whole leg, could have been beneficial, but maybe that would have spoiled the air of expectancy in the shot. So I뭠l leave my thoughts being 50/50 on the matter. The colours are natural, the details are very sharp, the dark BG adds to the mystery of the prowl, and the exposure was well managed.

Very well done and TFS.

C'est Une merveilleuse prise de vue que ce Joli portrait de ce magnifique lynx , Trs belle composition, les couleurs et le cadrage et les dtails sont tous trs bons.
Bravo et merci...JP

I notice that Lynx looks more or less like a house cat, Andrea.
Nice facial close-up. The posture denoting stealth for a hunt makes this fellow look quite alert in its environment.
TFS and bye.

Ciao Anndrea bellissimo primo piano di questa splendida lince, manca solo che ti faccia la dedica sotto la foto, bravo, ciao Silvio

Hi Andrea,
Thanks for sharing this closeup capturing this beautiful animal. Great composition, sharpness and color, I wish there would have been some eye contact but you can not have everything.
