Nature photography, political rants, and Martyman laughs from the ten-time award-winning author of "Cool Creatures, Hot Planet," "Endangered Edens," and the "Time Is Irreverent" series.

Animals A to Z. The Letter L

Marty’s photo of the day #2623: It’s “Animals A thru Z Month.” Each day in August, I will post an animal I’ve photographed—somewhere in the world—in alphabetical order.

L is for Lynx. I photographed this Canada lynx, named Cub, in my backyard. While Cub was never a wild animal (a friend of mine uses him for educational programs in the schools), he’s not tame, like a house cat, either. In fact, as soon as Cub tired of our photo shoot, he promptly tried to remove my leg with a quick swipe of one of his oversized paws. Canada lynx are protected under the Endangered Species Act as a “threatened species.”
