A lot of wildlife photography is waiting, waiting for the right moment to press your shutter button. Sometimes you wait a couple of hours, some times a couple of days. In my time doing wildlife photography I have been lucky enough to experience a lot of cool moments, that waiting for the right moment, you are able to capture brief moments of it with your camera

In this story you can see a small sample of this encounters.
