Celebrating 10 year Lynx-Aversary with Top Ten Blog Posts

July 30, 2023
In case it’s not clear,  the term ‘Lynx-aversary’ is what I use to describe the yearly anniversaries of the handful of lynx sightings I’ve been blessed with over the years.

Facebook often alerts me to these in the form of a digital memory, which inspires me to celebrate various Lynx-Aversaries by re-posting photos.

Today, July 30, 2023, is the Ultimate Lynx-Aversary, warranting a full, dedicated blog post.

It has been exactly 10 YEARS since this beautiful Canadian Lynx revealed himself to me:

This was one of the most profound wildlife encounters of my life, and it coincides with the beginning of this website: Kerri Martin Photography, and more importantly, this blog.

My post about this lynx sighting from July 30, 2013 was only the second ever post I published on August 11, 2013.

Since then I have published over 100 blog posts relaying some of my wild experiences with animals in the wild. I am so grateful to have this digital entity as a reminder.

In celebration of today, I have scanned through my 10 years of blog posts and below are my 10 ‘favorites,’ – just a bit of a highlight reel from the past decade of mother-nature infused encounters.

Before scrolling down, check out my newest photo gallery, featuring expansive photos from my own back-yard in Lethbridge, Alberta.

I have seen hundreds, perhaps thousands, of the world’s most deviously adorable mustelid (weasel) in my dreams, but I have only seen a handful of Pine Marten (aka American Marten) in ‘real life.’

The creature stood firm, every fibre of his being enraged, emanating an intense resolve on par with Gandalf’s infamous ‘YOU SHALL NOT PASS’ pronouncement in The Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the...

Toad Energy: A return to home (Part 1 of 3)

In August 2006, I poked a toad. While light and brief, my touch was enough to cause one thick, front arm to nudge slightly upward. This toad was indeed alive - that was all I needed to know. Relief...

THHHWUMP! It took a moment for my brain to register the sound of my camera hitting the ground. It looked rather cozy, laying there, covered in about 6 inches of soft snow. ‘Sh*t,’ I softly uttered as I picked it up, graciously accepting the kleenex my friend Jamie produced.

Thanks for celebrating this Lynx-Aversary with me!

Until next time, continue loving life an all things wild :)
