I am a long time lurker, but I’ve decided it’s time to join in properly. This is the photo that really got me into wildlife photography. I had loved the subject for many, many years, and finally, I decided to try it. Although this isn’t the perfect image, the big white patch in the top lefthand corner is distracting, the experience it reminds me of was amazing. The opportunity to see and connect with a wild animal is for me what wildlife photography is all about. I am looking forward to joining and contributing to the NPN .
