José-Elías Rodríguez – Spain – Opera Segnalata – Highlight in the category Mammals
The soul of the genet
Genets are beautiful mammals present in Spain from the arab invasion in the early middle age, although it is a controversial question. They live in forest and use the night to find their food: mice, insects and even fruits. They can jump from tree to tree with elegance. I took the image using two torches and three flashes in order to get the trace of the genet jumping and freezing the movement and the end of the shot, using a slow speed in the Nikon D610 camera, with a 105 macro objetive and a remote shooter. 1/8 seg, f8 ISO 1600.
