    marvellous capture and i agree – a really privileged peek…

  • When you see action like this going on, your 1st instinct is to catch it again if it repeats. Afterwards when you’ve caught the event, then you say, “boy was I priveged to get this one”. Its that or lose concentration. Sometimes I ignore others because they can be distracting when your camping out for a good shot.
