    1. Indeed Ernst, but then again, people keep telling me how lucky I am with rare animals vs photography . Posted 7 months ago
      1. Well, this one confirms your reputation. To have this crossing your path in daylight definitely is fortunate. Yet you were out there, you can't be fortunate without being in the field often, so hats off to you.

        Stunning mammal, thanks so much for sharing!
