Wild Proximity: Up close and personal

Challenge #23 in the Nature and Us series. Hosted by PentUp.
Challenge has finished
Lets see images of creatures in the wild that are CLOSE. Maximum focal length of 100mm - and the wildlife must dominate the image, while still showing its environment. Please INCLUDE in the subject or notes section; the SPECIES of animal, the general LOCATION (biome/environment) in which the photograph was taken. NO CAPTIVE animals such as in zoos or artificial enclosures. The animals must be "Living Wild", so not domestic animals on a farm. Entries that do not list in the notes/description section Species AND the Location in which the image was taken will be Disqualified [if polite warning to withdraw and re-submit with full information is not heeded].
