    I was walking along a wooded shoreline and came within 10 feet before I saw her. Took a couple of quick shots and left her alone. She never moved other than to lift her head after she decided I was OK.

    Hunter, you sure got close! I love the reflection of the horizon and light in the eyes.

    Thanks Miko. She was near a boat ramp and must have become somewhat acclimated to people. I stayed about 20 feet away at 400mm and was careful not to disturb her.
