Eaten Alive

Eaten Alive

I came across this handsome fella on the road to Neist Point Lighthouse on the Isle of Skye. He came straight across to me as I approached, and graciously posed for a photograph.

The poor thing was being eaten alive by midges. I had just enough time to snap a few shots before I was driven off by the swarm.

These pictures were taken with my Canon EOS 5D Mark IV and the extraordinary Canon 35 mm f/1.4 L II USM .
