Lynx photo

Wild Lynx, Denali National Park, Alaska.

Wow, what a trip this has been!  But the highlight was this lynx – I have been trying unsuccessfully for many, many years to capture an image of a lynx, but a couple of hours ago that all changed. 

It is late and I’m tired, so I will write more when I get back to Seward – but I had to share my excitement!

  1. Hey Ron,

    Let me be the first (on here) to congratulate you .. that’s awesome man .. way cool! Super happy for you – killer image.

    Cheers

    Carl

  2. Wow! I don’t blame you for being excited. Excellent image, much more than just a shot of an elusive subject.

    Looking forward to more from Denali.

    Thanks a lot everyone!

    Just made the long drive back to Seward – daydreaming about this experience made the drive a lot easier!

    Dave – the weather wasn’t bad, some sprinkles and clouds, but above freezing. Yesterday (Monday) was sunny, and the mountain was out most the day.

    MG – I hear you – I gotta find a new theme that supports larger images.

    Mark, now wolverine pretty much stands alone on my Alaska dream list, with a whole bunch of animals in a very distant second – animals like mink and martin. Outside Alaska, bobcat and mountain lion are at the top of that list. At this point, I would love to just have a quick glimpse at a mountain lion or wolverine!

  4. Wow! What a magnificent photo!

    I have been following your blog and wonderful photos for some time and your Mother’s blog even longer. You are very gifted and talented people.

    Greetings from Western Australia.

    P.S. I have been fortunate to have visited Alaska four times, and have had the sheer joy of taking the shuttle bus to Wonder Lake in Fall.

  6. Hey Ron,

    You said at the top you’ll write more when you get back to Seward .. so tell the story? More lynx photos (is that asking too much?) 🙂

    Cheers

    Thanks Laurent!

    Hey Carl – but you already heard the story :). I will add more – I’m just kind of excited about some of these other photos, so I thought I would post them first, and then go back to the lynx.

    Thanks man,

    Ron

  10. Ron,

    Amazing that you got all those great shots with one trip to the park. I did that drive in 2007, and didn’t get nearly as lucky, nice job. I have a good lynx shot too, but not as good as yours, mine was a result of predator calling in below zero temperatures, and the camera barely worked, it was about five below zero.

    Hi Matt,

    Yeah, this was a great trip. I have made a lot of trips to Denali, but this had to be one of the most productive.

    Thanks!

    Ron
