Took me about 30min to get close enough and another 15min to get the shot Catherine.

And I got VERY muddy.

And I was in my work shirt and tie.

And it was worth it :)

My personal opinion, brilliant shot

Great shot.

I can't help being a little disturbed by what looks like fishing line on the fence though. I wish people would be a little more sensitive to the dangers to wildlife.

Dave - what looks like fishing line is horse hair :)
