So when we ran into this one in Lake Treman in Upper Buttermilk Park he was so far away I almost didn’t bother. But when s/he started hunting I knew I couldn’t pass up the opportunity. Fortunately the much higher resolution of my D7100 coupled with the 1.3X image area made these shots possible. Certainly my best to date.
