Still, that is quite close and the photo turned out well. Did you do additional cropping in post processing to bring it even closer?
No additional cropping or post processing (that's too sophisticated for me). The tree was off the trail a ways, and I was able to climb up into some rocks to get closer and to get up to his eye level.
