The lynx skillfully overcame an obstacle course of wooden poles placed in water.
The spectacular sight is depicted on the island of Pecan in the American state of Louisiana.
U.S. residents who went to mine blue crabs saw a lynx about to cross the pond. Eyewitnesses thought that the animal would do it swimming, but a clever cat climbed on a post of the dam and made a series of jumps, after which it hid in the nearby thickets.
It was especially impressive to overcome the widest area between the central supports.
