To get this bird photographed is a great achievement and get this pose is even greater.

Terrific pose of this secretive bird. They and the Yellow Billed Cuckoo are often heard during mating season but they live in dense woods and their colors are drab and it's profile is very slender. This is a rare look at one in the open. Well done.

Well done to get any shot of these elusive birds, Peter - and this full stretch action take off is so well captured!
