This is a great shot, and you have every reason to be pleased with it - you had all the camera settings right, you waited patiently - but all your input to getting this picture is not diminished by adding, you were lucky to be there at that moment! When it comes to wild life - there is always, I think, an element of good fortune. Of course, the more you go out looking for a picture like this to happen, the more likely you are to get lucky!!

Amazing picture, and luck does not come in to it if you put the hours in and get your rewards. I have friends who are out in all conditions to achieve the results so Luck, not a chance.
