Sometimes you have no chance. Sometimes it´s your fault. Always the background its important in photography. A lot of!!!!
In this hide it was not allow to move anything and the background was plenty of leaves and black holes betwen them. And only one meter from the action!!! Crazy!!! A lot of photographers who go in this hide said to me that it doesn´t work fine. And I agree.
So in this case I´ve two chances: keep the background without light or let it black. Both solutions were bad. I choose the second one so you can keep your attention on the action.
