This is a lynx skull, found by my boyfriend’s dog. We were out at Hunker Creek, just outside of Dawson City, last summer. A few friends and I were building a stage for a music event we put on, and the dog, Frett, wandered off and came back playing with the skull. I was fascinated with the little beard of fur that remained. I’ve always enjoyed seeing bones and antlers while hiking, and so does the dog apparently.

Taken with a Nikon D90, f5.6, at 1/160th with a Nikon 50mm fixed lens, ISO 640
