Canada Lynx in Repose on a Moonlit Winter Night
The Canada Lynx hunts around twilight hours and at night, when snowshoe hares of the boreal forest are most active. They travel on specific trails or wait in ambush beds for prey. They are not always successful when hunting and need rest after vigorous exertion, like this winter Lynx during a moonlit night.
The winter coat of this Lynx creates interesting streaming textures and deep pockets within the fur to explore. A thick silvery grey brown colour coats the fur with white tipped edges conveying a frosted icicle appearance. This differs from the thinner yellowish‑grey or rusty reddish‑brown coat of summer.
