If there is such a thing as a goofy bird, I think this image captures it precisely:) Lovely capture.

Lovely action capture Greg! It must be quite scary if you're one of its prey items to see this lunging at you!!

An excellent head-on action shot, Greg. I love the fanned feet and intense look in the bird's eyes.
