      This is by far one of the best photos I’ve seen in a long time. Well done Noel! If I may ask, what camera did you shoot this with? And was it a 300mm lens?

        Thanks Michael for your kind remarks. Was shot with a Nikon D800 and 500 f4, no vr.

    My other passion for wildlife is art, part of the reason for my interest in photography. Take a look at the beginnings of my next painting based on this photo, hope you enjoy although only up to sketch stage so far.

      Happy to be the owners of another “Noel Smith” paintings more so this specific one as being there for the sighting makes it special.
