I made this acquaintance last spring. I wouldn’t say that we connected that much though. It seemed to me, and especially to my knees, that I was the only one who made an effort. He/she apparently had some manners at least and was kind enough to stay still for some time making this picture possible.
That pretty much sums up my experience with photographing animals so far. I absolutely love doing it and they make such great pictures but having them to stand still is impossible, yet alone finding them in the first place. Getting an insight into the troubles of working with animals only makes me admire those who shoot great pictures of them even more. Kudos goes out to them!:)
