    This is Cheyenne a Bald Eagle at the Hawk Conservancy in Hampshire.
    I stood for sometime getting portraits of her and al of a sudden she had enough and flew away.....

    Well, Cheyenne made it as obvious to you that the session is over now, as these sheep did to me after they had allowed me to take a good many of their pictures:

    (Sorry to be answering your photo with a photo but your photo just so reminded me of this one!)

    And of course your photo looks much better than mine and the bird is much more regal than sheep are and it has a lot more "message" and leaves a lot more room for interpretation and has this ephemeral aspect to it by the lightning and the black background - none of which is being had by my sheep-no-longer-want-to-pose photo...

    It's sometimes hard to get a good capture of a bird or animal (especially if they don't want to cooperate). But I like your capture as the Hawk flew away. I like the sheep, too, but not as much (ha, ha!).
