I have no pets, but the ones in nature. photos taken in the Canadian Rockies.
I met this guy in a rowboat, he was swimming across a lake. I quietly followed him to shore..
he didn't have much to say. he didn't seem to care at all that I was floating 12 feet away in my boat..
he was EXHAUSTED from the swim. (and he was too busy eating his lunch).
this little guy wasn't bothered by me either. he seemed bored by my presence.
he actually fell asleep while I sat quietly nearby, snapping photos.
(his mom was there too.. lying on a rock chill-axing..
she must have thought I was one of the herd -- she just sat there and yawned at me -- like I was no threat at all).
THIS guy is strictly "distance shots only" -- I took this from 50 yards away with a telephoto lens.
he was NOT aware of my presence. and I was NOT about to make an announcement.
I just kept quiet, and watched from a distance, as he passed on by.
