The Fifth Year
11th Of November
Not a lynx, but this reindeer was walking by my camera trap with the northern lights dancing on the sky. This is the kind of image I would like to get with the lynx.
5th Of December
Finally!!! After more than a year I got again an image of a lynx. It's not the same lynx I watched the previous years. You can clearly see that this lynx has big black spots over the whole body, while the lynx from the previous years has just a few spots on the legs. This lynx visit my camera trap for a short time. The first image was taken at 16:25:04 PM and the last image which shows him walking away was at 16:25:47 PM. A short visit for a bit more than 40 seconds. But anyway I'm very happy that I again was so fortunate to get this amazing cat in front of my camera.
30th Of December
On my way up to my camera trap I discovered lynx tracks on the path. I followed these tracks and was hoping they will lead to my camera trap. And they did. The tracks were quite big and I believe they belong to a male lynx. This was the second and last visit of the lynx in 2021. On the image you clearly can see that this is the same lynx which passed my camera trap the 5th of December.
On the videos from my trail cam I could see that this lynx is much more scared about the flash than the female lynx the previous years.
