One night, one of the shifts, I was lucky to get acquainted with the smallest representative of the weasel family, not the least of audacity and courage of a predator — a caress. Our acquaintance was on the side of a snow-covered road, almost in the city. The camera was with me.
Lusk discovered quite by chance, darting just a meter away from me, lost in the snow burrows, but just as suddenly appears in another. For it was impossible to keep track of movements. Nimble snow-white animal with a short tail lost in snow. Only betrayed his swift movement.
To better see me, weasel ran to the high snow and stretched out on his hind legs, looked me straight in the face. Catch the animal into the lens of the camera was almost impossible. In addition, in a night-time visibility focus did not want to operate on a round shape affection in snow.
And because most of the images on the field proved unimportant. But most importantly – from the time needed to focus before the shutter nimble animal in the picture was not there, and get an empty picture. So were lightning-fast movement of this tiny predator that his capture was not possible. Nevertheless, I was happy by meeting him.
The most successful, in my opinion, pictures, get one January night in the midst of the Epiphany celebrations, I am happy to introduce readers to the newspaper.
