Images of this guy still leave me in awe, lovely shot, Mike. You're extremely lucky to get the chance to photograph him, I'm very jealous! :D

Wow, Mike, it was worth the wait. Fantastic shot. So tell the truth, are you going to empty out a suitcase, throw away the winter clothes and bring him back with you? :lol:
