Writing with Light


I hope everyone had a great weekend.  Quick post today as it’s shaping up to be a very busy week. I realized that there were still some images from my Muskoka Wildlife Centre shoot that I hadn’t shared with you.  I’d like to introduce Yeti, a Canadian Lynx. These were taken with the Canon 70 – 200mm 2.8L lens that I rented for this shoot. I still marvel at this piece of glass.

    Edith, those pictures are really great and remind me of Robert Bateman paintings. Everything is crisp and so totally in focus and the composition is right on. A couple of pictures that should be on the “sold” list I’m sure. Gerry

  4. Dear Edith Levy, this is so beautiful and I haven’t known them before… are they same as cats or they are wild animals… Thank you, you captured amazing shots, I loved them both. Have a nice and enjoyable new week, with my love, nia

    • Thanks so much for the comments Nia. I always appreciate it. Yeti is a Lynx. They are found in the wild but she was photographed when I was at a woldlife centre which rescues wild animals.

    Beautiful captures Edith. The eyes are the most important challenge in photographing animals and you have knocked this out.

  6. Great shots! A friend of mine just got the same lens; he hasn’t come down yet.

    • Thanks Rob. I rented this lens for this particular shoot but I really didn’t want to give it back. I have to save up for my own.

  9. Great shots. Edith! The second shot is a great representation of the ferocity of the animal. Great capture!

    What an absolutely stunning creature! I love these shots. You have acquired quite the animal collection! I don’t think I have 10 animal shots in my entire portfolio… haha. Nice work Edith.

    Very nice captures, Edith.! Eyes are perfectly sharp and you have made great use of the shallow DOF offered by the 70-200.

  19. Nice shots Edith.

  20. Great shots Edith, the lens is amazing to say the least, after I got it I was bitten bad by the L Bug and now I have the 16-35L and the 100mm macro L, good thing the Empress loves me : )

    Holy smokes! I was wondering how you got so close to one of these with only a 200mm lens! These are amazing cats, love’em. There is one momma that roams around near Newport Back Bay that will just stroll right by on you on the same trail – that is, unless you try and take her picture 😦

  23. A handsome animal with those wispy ends to the ears. Excellent portraits Edith.

  27. I am not kidding, those are AMAZING photographs, Edith! Unbelievable! What great details in that really cute cat. Yep, it’s been decided… we want one here for a pet. I can’t get over the size of his mitts! Great, great, great images!!
