I keeep coming back to this shot. Its technically perfect. Great composition with perfect timing. What else can be said. It would be really impressive if it were 3 times bigger. Terrific job.

Wow, thanks everyone!! I am humbled.. I don't usually shoot wildlife but have been wanting to try it out some. I will admit that I had the camera set up wrong for most of my shots that day. I am use to landscapes and they don't move like these critters do. I enjoyed the experience and will be back for more.

As to the size... well I was shooting with a 70 to 200 lens. This kind of stuff will make you want huge and expensive toys. I have a 1.7x for the lens but did not have it on it as I did not want to loose the stop or so.

Cheers and thanks again,

Bill
