Beautiful soft light, and indeed a soft touch, for this lynx and its cub. You have done well getting in so close on a rare scene like this, what a fantastic opportunity. More please!

Photographers Comment

Thank you so much for choosing both my pictures for the mark of excellence award and my congratulations for the winner for his outstanding documentation and to the other participants. My name is Johnny Kr├╝ger and I come from Germany. Here it shows a lynx mother with its cub.. the cubs were very mobile and let mommy get nervous. Nevertheless we had to wait several hours for this beautiful moment although we knew exactly where the Lynxes are.. that is what our passion is all about ;o). My dear Friend Stefan Betz also has a "mark of excellence" picture here in this competition (the doe and it's fawn) and what is greater than to share these great experiences with a friend? This picture was made in the Wildlife sanctuary park of Pforzheim where Stefan and I are making the new annual calendar for next year. Shot with a Canon 1D mk3 and a Canon 300/2.8
