I will post a sequence of perching and taking off. Marienna took 80+ shots of him hovering, I took one presentable one. I have very bad vision, simply don't see the birds in the air. That's what it is.

Great find and details, Karl. What a great opportunity and I also like the not so typical perch for this species.

A fine image, Karl. An excellent perch in this photo, adds to the appeal.
