Focal Length:300mm
Shutter:1/0 sec
Camera:PENTAX K-x

On my second day of heading out for a relaxing day of shooting, I happened to see this in the treeline.  He wasn’t even at my destination, but rather just during the drive to wherever.

I quickly pulled over, threw my macro lens onto the camera, and hoped for the best.
