And yes, I was the special person that decided to see how close I could get. Well since it was a national park she was quite used to people and happily munched away at her food for a while while I snapped her picture. She finally got spooked and started to run, but not before I caught her scared face!
Also I had the fun adventure of working with a lens baby for the first time! I tried it out a day before these were taken, but they weren't so good as I hadn't gotten the hang of it. But I got bored and figured I'd try again, using my cat Sulu as a model. Not the best pictures but it was all in good fun.
