I was hoping for a good shot of her looking right into the camera, but as she lifted that massive head and stared at me I stared to think this may have been a mistake. As I gazed at her theorugh the viewfinder, her epxression said it all – ”Hey, I think you’re too close.”
All I could think about was that old cliché - careful what you wish for – you just might get it!
Fortunately, her calf was well behind her so she didn’t really look at me as a threat. In a matter of seconds she pushed her head back down into the water for some more aquatic grub - and I carefully backed off!
