To be able to sit less than one meter from this magnificent animal, with only a netted fens between us, look him in the eye, hear his deep bass roll and smell him, was just fantastic.

Another reason to do the Norway trip, I think a month in the area would work well now I can see a use for the 200-400 & Subjects with Teeth & Attitude, although I'm sure the local Tribes have plenty of both considering they are descendants of the Norsemen.
Lovely set of Images Eldar, must be a Magical Experience (to quote Steve Jobs), to Photograph these animals in the wild though, and as good as these Images are, and they are good, I still feel your earlier Lynx Images are always going to be hard to beat.
Nice to see that 200-400 getting some use though, never would have considered it would be a Scandinavian Landscape type Lens, seems it can be.
