[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This portrait of a European Lynx was taken through 50mm x 50mm square wire mesh, By pushing the lens tight to the mesh, the camera ignores it most of the time.
Taken at the Chateau de la Bourbansais in Brittany on a day out.
I had never seen a Lynx before, anywhere.
Camera settings:- ISO 200, AV, Spot metering, 400mm focal length, hand held.
