Spots seem under-represented on IndiaWilds, so here goes. (Apologies to those who have already seen this image).
We found this chap last May. He had just woken up and seemed to be deciding what to do. After an age, by which time all the other vehicles had also congregated around him, he yawned and melted down the tree trunk and was gone.
Although I process my images immediately, I missed this one, and only found it on my return to Bangalore when I was going over the RAW files again. This is also why I never bin my RAW files. All are retained on external drives.
40D with 500f4 IS, ISO 640. This is a smallish crop (50- 60%). I chose not to do any cloning.
Thanks for looking. Comments and critique welcome.
