A belated congratulations, Don! What a beauty indeed! He looks... exasperated? I'm not sure what... Just a terrific capture! What lens did you use for this, and how far were you from him? I still want to shadow you on an animal outing!
Chris, I took this at the National Zoo with my big lens -- 200mm-500mm and I was probably all the way out at 500mm. The image was not cropped in the computer. No problem getting with you to photograph the animals at the zoo. We just need to find a good time and date.
