This was taken from behind a 7 ish foot fence while standing on a ladder, holding on to my camera and a "big gun" lens (a friend let me borrow) from about 65-75 feet away. The fact that it is in focus and I didn't fall off of the ladder is a big win in itself!!! Lol!!! Amazing little creatures that never stopped swiveling their heads looking all around. : )
