Hi there Chateau Prairie :-), thank you very much!
Amazing he let you get so close! those determined eyes, excellent capture, Sharon
Hi Scott :-). I was standing on the bridge getting shots of the river and buildings when he landed right next to me. He let me get as close as I wanted for as long as I wanted – I must have gotten 15 shots. At first he just slowly walked back and forth, posing. Then he tilted his head sideways a few times, leaned in, stared right into the lens, and *whap*. Startled me to pieces! I guess he’d decided he’d had enough :-).
how funny, and awesome! hmm, I bet he was seeing his reflection in the lens!?
Scott, brilliant!! I’ll bet that was it!
Haha this made me laugh! Love it!
Hi JJ, I’m happy this gave you a chuckle. :-). It did me too!
What a great image!
Hello FF, thank you! 🙂
