Story from behind the lens: In August last year this older female was starting to spend more and more time in camp, regularly feeding on the bushes around my house. This gave me ample opportunity to photograph her from either my window or out through my door. Over time she became gradually accustomed to my presence allowing some fantastic close up photography opportunities.
