So you will not think I'm a total goof after yesterday's Silly Tuesday missing lynx shot, here is what I was after before he jumped off the log.

Claudia from Illinois, United States

Ah, now I get it. You were trying to get his entire body--including his head--in the photo! :) :) This is wonderful! i loved yesterday's b/c it was off-beat and made me smile but this is perfect!

@Claudia: Yes, I just put the "missing lynx" shot up for Silly Tuesday, but actually shot this one first, then he jumped. I almost tossed the first shot, but decided I liked it too. ;-)))

Vanilla Wine from United States

29 Jul 2009 4:47pm

@Vanilla Wine: Yes, I got this shot first, then he jumped out of the frame so I used that one for Silly Tuesday yesterday. Thanks.

Bethany from Michigan, United States

He reminds me of how a house cat grips something as he's playing- was he playing in this photo?

@Bethany: He was not playing in this shot, but I did get to see him do the house cat "butt wiggle" before a pounce. Pretty funny. ;-)))
