    I went to a local park for some picture but had no luck so as I was leaving in the car I noticed this on the sign. It was strange as it was taken with my 40-150mm and it actually let me get pretty close and styed there for about 10 minutes. Hope you like.

    What a find! And nice lighting to boot. Lucky you that you could get nice and close and get a good shot off.

    With a beak that sharp I was hoping he would not turn on me. It was cool getting that close to him.

    Nice get! And good thing you didn't get much closer. It looks like he's making a fist to defend himself :lmao:

    I just wish I could have gotten in front of him to get both eyes but it was a big ditch. I did capture him once when he turned his head.
