The winning shots from our annual photo contest celebrating fishing, hunting, wildlife and family adventure
WILDLIFE & WILD PLACES: 1ST PLACE
PHOTOGRAPHER: Christopher MacDonald
WHERE: North Bay area, Ontario
WHEN: February 2019
DETAILS: Prior to taking this winning photo near North Bay, Ontario, Christopher MacDonald had visited the area several times knowing lynx were present, hoping to see and photograph one. “I saw a few tracks, but I didn’t have any luck,” he says. “Then finally on this day, I found this lynx napping in the sun.” As MacDonald got his camera gear set up, the lynx woke up and sat at the edge of the clearing, grooming itself.
