    I reckon the shot was staged. What are the chances of a guy standing next to a fence with this wolf jumping over it as well as getting everything perfectly in focus and with a flash going off at exactly the right time.

    The birds one in the link is far better and natural.

    It is staged but the execution is excellent

    Been there for some time now....:)

    Guys, even if it was staged, it is still a great pic. Lots of doors have just opened for that guy because of that pic.

    Agreed, the bird is nice, and it was taken by a kid:thumbup:

    Very good shot.
    If it was staged even better, because the setting is amazing too.
    Well done to the photographer.

    Thanks for sharing Sean:thumbup:
