Marakele Aardvark by LinRuPhotography Marakele Aardvark by LinRuPhotography
A while back I become one of the privileged few wildlife photographers that could photography an aardvark in the golden last light of the day. These very shy and skittish nocturnal animals are rarely seen and photographed, let alone in these conditions.

I have written a blog post on my workflow in Lightroom and Photoshop CS in processing this image, which you can read on MY BLOG.
