Beautiful shot Greg. It isn't very often a person gets a chance at a pose like that. Excellent. Well-deserved nomination for SOTW. Thanks for sharing.

Your spotting has been nominated for the Spotting of the Week. The winner will be chosen by the Project Noah Rangers based on a combination of factors including: uniqueness of the shot, status of the organism (for example, rare or endangered), quality of the information provided in the habitat and description sections. There is a subjective element, of course; the spotting with the highest number of Ranger votes is chosen. Congratulations on being nominated!
