This is one I took last week with MA and LeAngel before we went to the beach to shoot kite surfers.
I haven't seen guys out of the water like this that often, and when I have they usually make a hasty retreat to the water. I managed to get quite close to him before he went for a swim. Pretty tough shooting condition as it was mid afternoon with the light coming from the other side, plus reflecting off the water.

Too far away in this case. It was shot with 70-200 and then cropped.

Have you got a speedlite flash? If so you underestimate it. I hit a kingfisher easily at 10 metres this arvo ... you were closer than that :)
