A wild cat looks surprised as it holds its paws up while leaping in the air. The 15-month-old male caracal is trying to catch small birds while its female sibling watches on.

Typically nocturnal, the caracal is usually highly secretive and difficult to observe. The endearing images were captured by amateur photographer Ina Schieferdecker in the grounds of a private finca near Toledo, Spain.
