The title may seem strange but given the lengths I went to to get this shot, it’s fitting I think lol :)

Here we have Skeeter and Bruce on the bank of our dam (Cushnie, QLD) one fine evening, I was home from work in time to run down there with my trusty kodak easyshare point and shoot (Pentax DSLR is still sick!) to try and get some snaps, I was glad I had only a little $99 camera in my hands because, as you can see from the photo below, things did not go to plan – BRUCE decided to launch into a gallop just as he passed in front of me, splattereing me and the kodak with MUD! no I didn’t get photos of that, only a large dark blob of mud on the lens! I may add that the amount of mud on my face was NOTHING compared to the rest of me!
