If your picture is not good enough
You are not close enough

Gulp!  ;D

I always use the following rule.

If the flesh ripping fangs and the slavering jaws of death are closer than the MFD, the photographer should move back.  LoL
I shoot with a Camera Obscura with an optical device attached that refracts and transmits light

I really like this one. Well done Kerry.

Any one of us would be extremely happy to be able to get 1 shot like this in a lifetime. You land them repeatedly, Dustin. Marvellous!
