Good one leg standing position, Tom. Lovely color in the bill and the eye.

Atom, Nice details and interesting pose. Looks like the image is going downhill a bit.

Great bird and a decent result given the harsh midday light. Would be helpful to have the catchlight in his eye in the future.

Nice shot. I can imagine this bird would look awesome if you had better (not so harsh) light.

Yes Ludo, we get two kinds of light after about 8:00AM. Harsh and Harsher. No Ozone layer here to speak of they tell me. Just had a spot removed from my arm. Doc says no more uncovered limbs. I sez whose? mine or the trees? Doc has a good sense of humor.

They are very tame if you give them camo type clothes and move very slowly.

Right you are Gene. I must be getting too old to hold the camera square.
