Nice shot! I think frozen would be the only way I would get that close to take the shot too. ;)

No way!!!! I thought for sure you would have just frozen it for the shot. I always thought they would just revive after. For some reason I thought that was how they made it thru winter. Well then, mad props to you my friend, and bravery points too! lol
