Ok, this is my kind of Gal... Chillin, and posing!!!... LOL Yeah, right, and my wife gave me permission to say that.. :)... This lady was down in the nature grasses, with the bull elk guarding his harem, of a dozen or more does. Tough part is, this image started as a long shot, as there was a stream and considerable distance between us. So i did the florida thing, took, off my socks, boots, and rolled up the pants, proceeded to cross this stream, which turned out to be knee deep/ and freaking freezing!!! i guess i should have known, as no other photographers were crossing the stream.... :) So after i crossed, i crawled up as close as i dared, with the big bull watching me... stayed as flat as i could, and used the natural grasses, to give me this front, & back wash dof wise. Focusing was rough, as every time the cold wind blew, so did the grasses right in front of her.... patience paid off as she chewed her cud, and i waited for the perfect moment.! As always, thks for your reviews, C&C, and thoughts on my images!! One can only climb to the next level, when you hear the truth,and reviews by better photographers than yourself.
