Can't be too proud if he let you get this close to him. Wink Great image IMO. Maybe because I don't see ione like it often regardless of that technicals handled well. Really is a great image.

Excellent shot, can't believe how close you were! I have a Sigma 10-20mm and you must have only been a couple feet away, worth it though!
