He was much too close for good wide shots, and of course I was in the wrong spot.
The Great Blue had dropped down on the railing of this ‘bridge to nowhere’. It’s a short span to a small open spot over water. The far side is nowhere… thick vegetation and a favorite Alligator spot.
All I could do was turn and shoot at the shortest my lens would go. Which was not short enough.
