    Spotted this guy taking a rest, and was able to capture a few images before it decided to fly away. All C&C is welcomed and appreciated.

    Hey John, didn't know you were over here too. I think I commented on the other board, but I'll do it again This is a great shot. Not sure I've seen a Robber Fly like this before.
