Does this qualify as an animal ... all 5/8" of him?? ;)

Well, I’m an engineer so I’m going to pass and leave it to the docs on the forum.  :P :P :P

Nice shot though.

Thanks guys.  When that little guy crawled out of the stump he was on and I saw his glistening skin (not a creature I'd noticed before in general), I was just as thrilled as I was seeing the baby Northern flickers I was shooting at their nest.  I, like I'm sure all of you, am so thankful I was introduced seriously to nature at an early age - it's absolutely mind boggling what's out their to enjoy.

Hi Jack.
Nice shot, large or small I think it qualifies quite well.

Cheers, Graham.

Thanks Graham.  I was shooting with 400 X2 and the DO version doesn't have very close focus so not as good at macro as the 300 2.8 I used to pack around.

I can understand wanting to go (back)!!

Not quite the same area but does anyone have any good link/resources on a road trip to Bella Coola?  I sure could be tempted to head up to the Yukon and Alaska as well!

I don't normally do animal shots because there are so few opportunities in England. A bit different in Borneo. All the shots were in the wild, and you had to be quick on the draw. Silvered leaf monkey taken from when we were in a boat, not the monkeys MikeH. I used the 400mm with 2xTC.

Flying monkeys brought back shivers from childhood viewing of wizard of Oz.
