[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Soon after I got my first digital camera (Nikon D100) I went out hiking with a cheap Sigma 70-300mm DL lens and a 128 flash card. I had all the setting wrong as I was just learning digital. I was lucky that I got this picture .. I had the camera set at the smallest image size, the lowest quality and the bracking on. I even had the timer on and was upset when the camera didn't take the picture when I fired it.. when the camera when off 10 seconds later I was able to reset the timer and shot once more before the dragon was fed up and left ..

I have learned a lot about digital camera settings since then .. but I must say I did like this shot ..

LOL, such or similar things we probably all went through.
And yes - not a bad shot - especially given the circumstances!
Cheers, Klaus
