That is a great capture, Vision. Excellent shot. It looks like she had been sleeping there since she still has one foot up pullled into her breast feathers and is standing on one leg. I guess she decided it was time to wake up and go look for something to eat, and you looked too big and not tasty enough.

Hey Dale. Thanks for the remarks. Yes I think you're right. When I first saw her, she was probably still asleep. That's the only reason she was still there as I went to get my SX50. The raptors here never stick around for long when they know you've seen them. Luckily I was prepared and the three seconds she gave me were enough to get her portrait. Would have pulled back the zoom a tad if I had a second chance but she was already gone from the EVF. And lucky for me, she wasn't flying straight toward me.
