This is the first time I have photographed a baby Canada Lynx and wow, they are sooo cute. Trying to photograph both of them was a challenge, a welcome one, but still a challenge. Amazing how agile they are at just 6 weeks! Very much looking forward to my winter wildlife photography workshops and photographing these little ones in the snow!
