I'm sorry it has been so long since we posted on our blog. We were not expecting to have zero days off for most of the field season. Anyway, yesterday was our first full day off, and it was very exciting...because, Chris and I saw a Lynx!! We went north of Duluth, driving along the shore and then took some of the inland roads to look at the nice boreal forest. I saw something cross the road, and we pulled up to look, and Chris spotted it just sitting in the brush about 10 ft from us! It looked at us curiously for a minute or two, then slowly walked off into the forest. And, we had our cameras on our laps- what luck! You can see the ear tufts better in the second shot.
