No blunderbuss, 12 bore shotgun or high powered rifle required…and sorry taxidermists, but you might just as well go and get stuffed…. when ‘The Great White Hunter’ Mr Shpics goes head-hunting for wall trophies the Nikon is the weapon of choice….
This squirrel monkey took time out from gorging himself on flower stamens to look me in the eye with an “If I was just a little bit bigger I’d rip your ruddy head off” kind of look…but… he was all of seven inches nose to pink glistening rump, so… just between us… I remained unintimidated. Us wildlife photgraphers do not know the meaning of fear.
“OY MONKEY WHATCHOO LOOKIN’ AT ?”…Click… Gotcha!
The handsome chap above certainly had size on his side, but was too busy licking bark to put up any sort of a fight and with one quick snap “The Great White Hunter” struck again…right between the eyes.
Just chop off a few extremities and he’s ready for mounting….
(No mounting giraffe jokes please…they’ve all been done before).
Snoozy here didn’t see me coming…..Snoring on arrival..Snoring as I left….
I came..I saw..I co-nikon-quered…
Another head in the bag.
One shot, two heads for the wall.
