Thanks John. Yes, I have shared in the past that I feel fortunate as a photographer to live in a tourist area. When I go to areas like theme parks, or fishing piers, beaches,etc, the wildlife are already used to seeing hundreds of folks every day. And at home, living in a subdivision with large natural areas around the golf course allows all the animals to be comfortable with lots of people walking around all day. I just walk around with a camera instead of golf clubs.
Hey, its not my fault if somebody thinks I am cutting my way through a desolate jungle to get some of my wildlife shots.
