  1. Awesome Photo’s paul…. good to know that some of those majestic beasts are still out there.

    Just shown them to my wife trying to justify the purchase of my own 500 mm bazooka ;) and who knows maybe go out there myself.

    And i for one would love to see a high res of the first one.

    God speed,
    Thek – no

  2. Your photographs are stunning, Paul, and I thank you for sharing them. I was directed here by a friend of a friend, and I have passed on the link to your blog for your photography to show friends. I would love a full sized image of the first photo here also.
