The Last Watch

By teocali
Lying flat in the grass with the camera on the ground, I was attempting eye level shots of an Otter feeding, at the BWC Lingfield, last Monday. This capture caught my eye (excuse the pun!) and it is I admit a bit ghoulish, but I just couldn't get over the way the camera picked out the "dinner's fishy eye" staring balefully at me! V1 is a cropped in close-up and V2 the original shot, slightly cropped.

Settings: F/5.6 1/500sec ISO160 manual@70mm handheld

Many thanks for your continued support - very much appreciated

Its clear to see that the quality of the original image is what has enabled you to get that super close crop in V1 Sylvia- and what perfect timing. Wonderful capture.
