    Great shots. How'd you get him/her to look towards you like that? Staple a mouse to the top of your lens by his tail? :lol:

    Thanks I know wish i could have had that wing tip in the shot but it all was happening so fast was lucky to get it as I did .

    Actually I was off to the side and other photogs were in front of the bird I was banging away and it happened to look over at me for a quick instant .......... Pure luck
