Wild animals are a great challenge to photograph. Always unpredictable with rich payoffs.

Camouflage In The Swamp

Postby minniev » Sat Apr 08, 2017 1:50 pm

Found this guy yesterday in the swamp I hike in regularly. He had several companions. They fled the swamp two years ago when the drought started, but I'm glad to see them back with the recent flooding.

Great shot! I like how it seems to have found a very comfortable place to bask.

It's a beautiful image, but I have to ask, how dangerous are the swamp-things and have you ever felt in danger from any of them?

Can you tell us more about the image? How you came upon it and set everything up? Thanks! S-
