Canadian Lynx
Photographer: Brenda Tracy
Location: Denali National Park, Alaska
I was riding my bike in the park on Earth Day weekend. The sun had gone behind a ridge and it was starting to get really cold. I had my head down, cranking uphill towards my goal. I heard a magpie squawking and it wouldn't stop. I looked over to see what all the commotion was about and it was "mobbing" this lynx! I got off my bike and started taking photos. Without the magpie's incessant squawking, I would have ridden right past this tremendous sight!
