Shot this morning. This fella flew right over my head. I only head a split  second to take shot. Not even time to zoom out with 200-500mm. I toned the down super rich blue sky to grey be less distracting.
D2HS, 200-500mm f/5.6
1/1000, ISO-200, f/5.6, handheld, VR-ON @500mm

Please click on the image for uncompressed view, thank you.
