Annual meet at BWC, thanks as always to Terry for organising it and congratulations on your great news.

Little trip off the normal BWC shots, whilst standing taking pics of the Mink I spotted this young lady carrying a Badger into the enclosure.

Had the 150-500 on and I dont think it was a bad thing, as I think this shot has a loving feel to it between the handler and the Badger.

What do you think?

Comments and crits welcome...Steve

Straight from the camera cos the footy starts soon, so mods welcome...as long as you make it better!

Wondered how you managed it as mine never look this good straight from camera, then I spotted it was jpeg not RAW Wink

Do like the grey / white of badger in diagonally opposite corner to grey / white of the keeper's hat.

Totally agree and a nice cameo shot of the day out.

Love the tight crop and clean bg. Great capture showing this fine female, (Badger that is) Smile
The best way to stop her from running away all the time
Great day

Delightful capture Steve - definitely a lovely atmosphere of tenderness between the two. Great image and title. I like the mod as well.

Thanks for all the positive comments guys and gals, I am glad the feeling of the shot isnt me throug "rose coloured specs"!

Thanks for the mod Rob, looks just about perfect and as I would want to see it.
It was a quick post and run as Arsenal were on the telly last night and I didnt have time for any alterations, I couldnt have done it this well anyway ps skills not there yet!

Thanks all who commented I appreciate the time taken..... unlike those who look and dont click, dont comment, but more importantly dont critique on why they dont like it, strange.

Steve

I was just fortunate where I was standing Sarah, was actually taking shots of the Mink as she walked in, right place right time!
