A new species photographed in the south of Iberia, the mongoose, so elusive that I had to use all my knowledge in camouflage including the camouflage of the smell to be able to have it at five meters, after the first click of the camera it approached the tumbihide unless one meter from the camera and my face, a tense and beautiful moment

As always all comments are welcome
thanks for watching

Canon EOS 1D Mark IV and sigma 150-500mm

Well done, Enrique! A lovely image of this brave species. A fine alert pose in sweet golden light.
