This is a lynx and the shot was taken on our Wildlife Photography Bootcamp in Spain - with over 100 different species from the five continents, this is the perfect place to learn all the basics of wildlife photography.
The animals live in semi-wild conditions in stunning scenery. Getting a good shot of a lynx in the wild is close to impossible (they're endangered), but on this workshop anyone can get shots like this.
For this shot we waited for the sun to set to add some color to the clouds and to be able to shoot the lynx as a silhouette. During the day we had plenty of opportunities to shoot them in normal daylight conditions, so this was a nice bonus.
