This was taken with hand held telephoto in heavy brush under extreme conditions.

I just had to share it with my fellow sportsmen and photographers who can appreciate a once in a lifetime capture.

Greetings:

That is simply amazing! I am in awe of the persitence and patience you must have employed to get this shot. 8)You have a knack for capturing the true nature of wildlife in their element. I hope some day you will turn your attention to the elusive North American dust bunny.

Regards,

Tom, on Point Pelee, Canada

Thank you Tom and funny you should mention it but if truth be told, I captured the North American dust bunny with my Brownie Box camera in 1939 after laying in seclusion in a field of spiny prickly cacti for eleven days without food or drink. Imagine my chagrin when I found that I had forgotten to load film in the Brownie.

It was so embarrassing that this is the first time I am sharing that adventure.

Hi Fred;

This is not a joke...

Back around '84/85 I took a tour on the Agawa Canyon rail line, famous for its views through forests and valleys. I took a dozen shots. I took two dozen shots. When I reached three dozen, I realized something was wrong.

You guessed it!

Regards,

ok, i beat you all (no offense of course)

i went to yosemite, i only had my piece of crap, little vivatar (haha i think it was vivitar) film camera...locked focus, exposure, the works....your basic 20 dollar camera,

well, i was shooting the two days i was in yosemite, one of those days being a mile hike UPHILL to columbia rock, i took some gorgeous(would be) shots of half dome from there, went to see the sequoias, went to glacier point, and bridal veil,

and then, later in my trip, (actually, around monterray) i notice my shot number is climbing passed 27....

turns out, the film didn't catch..and none of my yosemite shots were taken...

maaan was i mad....if only i knew this at columbia rock....i could've "accidentally" dropped the camera off the edge...

lol


oh yeah...btw....AMAZING shot of that rare beast! great tracking job!
